Abstract The recovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from sputa positive or negative for acid-fast bacilli that were stored for 17 +/- 7 days and inoculated in the BACTEC MGIT 960 system (MGIT) was higher than that from sputa inoculated in Lowenstein-Jensen medium. MGIT is useful for isolation of M. tuberculosis from sputa subjected to long-term storage
