Excuse me for my ignorance, but do you have any more info on the Holst skim milk test? I'm interested to know how this is performed. Thanks
The test is conducted by suspending a suspect scale or a smear of a diseased larva in a test tube or glass vial containing 3 or 4 ml of 1-percent powdered skim milk in water. The tube is then incubated at 37° C. If AFB is present, the suspension should clear in 10 to 20 minutes. It should be noted that this test is not totally reliable, but any doubt should be expelled by using another additional testing method.
