Common sample types include sputum (expectorated and induced), bronchoalveolar lavage
(BAL) specimens, bronchoscopic brushings or washings, lung fine-needle aspirate, and pleural fluid.
For this purpose, bronchoalveolar lavage
(BAL) samples were evaluated for the presence of MTB by using GeneXpertA(r)MTB/RIF test.
Diagnostic yield of Bronchoalveolar Lavage

With great interest, I read the first case report on the isolation of Nocardia thailandica from the bronchoalveolar lavage
sample of an Iranian patient (IJMS volume September 2018).
We excluded tuberculosis on the basis of direct examination and culture of sputum and bronchoalveolar lavage
(BAL) is routinely done in a procedure of Bronchoscopy and subjected to cytology study, other analysis in diagnosis of infections and other non-infective studies.

) in hospitals, aScope BronchoSampler, during Q1 2018/19 and before summer 2019, a single-use rhinolaryngoscop, aScope 4 RhinoLaryngo Slim, to be used for ENT procedures (Ear, Nose and Throat).
fumigatus was isolated from a bronchoalveolar lavage
. With worsening clinical status and persistently positive A.
Endotracheal aspirate (ETA) and Bronchoalveolar lavage
(BAL) samples were collected aseptically from patients on mechanical ventilation on day zero i.e.
Lung tissue, bronchoalveolar lavage
fluid (BALF) and serum samples were harvested.
To both diagnose AEPs and to rule out possible infectious and cardiac etiology, fiberoptic bronchoscopy for bronchoalveolar lavage
(BAL) and echocardiography was performed.
Furthermore, patients with persistent or progressive symptoms may require a more extensive diagnostic evaluation, including bronchoscopy with collection of bronchoalveolar lavage
