-Once bacteria have transformed into the L-form they can no longer be detected by ordinary laboratory procedures. Although scientists have known about L-form bacteria for over a century, many of them have not detected ​them in tissue and blood samples because they are very difficult to culture. ​+Once bacteria have transformed into the L-form they can no longer be detected by ordinary laboratory procedures.

 Forms of bacteria with cell walls can be easily grown outside the body (grown //​[[home:​patients:​assessing_literature:​in_vitro_studies#​in_vitro_studies|in vitro]]//). However L-form bacteria have great difficulty surviving in a foreign environment. In order to grow them successfully in the lab, conditions must be similar to those in the human body (grown [[home:​patients:​assessing_literature:​in_vitro_studies#​in_vivo_studies|in vivo]]). Consequently they can be cultured on a medium called blood agar at very specific temperatures and at a certain pH. Forms of bacteria with cell walls can be easily grown outside the body (grown //​[[home:​patients:​assessing_literature:​in_vitro_studies#​in_vitro_studies|in vitro]]//).
