The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of the VersaTREK system for Mycobacterium tuberculosis drug susceptibility testing compared with results obtained with the Bactec MGIT 960 system. A total of 67 strains were evaluated. Overall agreement was at 98.5%. Kappa indexes were 1.0 for isoniazid, rifampin, and ethambutol, 0.937 for pyrazinamide, and 0.907 for streptomycin. The VersaTREK system is validated for M. tuberculosis drug susceptibility testing. Copyright © 2012, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.
