We started culturing M. paratuberculosisa few weeks ago - although
the disease is not very common in Austria. The lab I worked before
(in Lower Saxony - Northen Germany) had a lot of diagnostics regarding
Paratb. We did there mostly Microscopy and Serodiagnosis. But noe they
have a running culture diagnosis.
The major problem is the mycobactin - you can either produce it yourself
(a messy procedure) or buy it (vastly expensive). We currently buy it...
There is now a project from the government reg. paratb and we're involved
- so getting some money for this...
We should discuss this later again (we're just starting).

Cheers, Sebastian
