Thirty MDR TB isolates were tested for susceptibility to ofloxacin, amikacin, and kanamycin by MGIT 960, and the result were compared to those obtain with proportion method on Lowenstein Jensen media, considered a reference method. Results for ofloxacin showed sensitivity 100% and specificity 75%, whereas for amikacin sensitivity 96% and specificity 100%; kanamycin sensitivity showed both specificity of 100%.
