Multiple-tube most probable number (MT-MPN) method, a statistical method based on probability theory, has been used for estimating the reversion frequency of auxotrophic mutants of Mycobacterium fortuitum and M. Smegmatis. Reversion frequencies obtained by the MT-MPN method are compared with those obtained by the conventional plating method. Merits of the MT-MPN method over the plating method are discussed.
