          Abstract

          One hundred and fifty clinical isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis were tested for susceptibility to pyrazinamide using the fully automated Bactec MGIT 960 system and the radiometric Bactec 460TB system. The overall concordance rate between MGIT 960 and radiometric system was 100% and the mean turnaround times to report the susceptibility test results were almost identical (6.37 and 6.8 days, respectively).
