• Next meetings
• International collaborations
• New mycobacterial species
High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) may be used to investigate the
lipids of mycobacterial cell wall. As different species are characterized by different
mycolic acid patterns the chromatographic profile can be used for the
identification at species level.
The site houses the largest library on profiles available at present.
It is possible to search the profiles according to the species name or on the basis
of the features of the chromatogram.
