Abstract The lysis centrifugation technique is preferred for culturing Brucella spp. at all stages of brucellosis because it yields 25\% more positive results and on average provides results 10 days earlier than the Ruiz-Castaneda method. This lysis method is inexpensive and easier to use and may be used in laboratories with limited expertise or equipment if all safety precautions are taken.
