When samples are collected, you will hear about “acid-fast” types distinguished by their resistance tdye colorization, “gram-positive” and “negative,” and their “rod” shapes. Cultures (growing the bacteria colonies in Petri dishes in the lab) are done after swabbing the area, or collecting in other ways from infectious site(s).
