Table 2 Efficiency of phage-PMMS method in isolating and detecting MAP cells compared to MPN

From: Evaluation of the limitations and methods to improve rapid phage-based detection of viable Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis in the blood of experimentally infected cattle

Number of MAP Cells
MPN Number of Plaques
104 TNTC TNTC TNTC
103 88 52 79
102 0 5 4
101 0 0 0
100 0 0 0
  1. MPN most probable number method for determining number of MAP cells [22]
  2. TNTC too numerous to count
