Identification system for Staphylococci for Clinical, Veterinary & Environmental Isolates
Microgen Staph-ID has been developed for the identification of commonly encountered Staphylococcus spp, isolated from clinical, veterinary and environmental samples. These bacteria, although commensal, are recognised as potential human pathogens eg. S.aureus and S.epidermidis. Coagulase negative Staphylococcus spp are common colonises of prosthetic valves and in dwelling catheters.
The Microgen Staph-ID system comprises a single microwell test strip containing 12 standardised biochemical substrates which have been selected on the basis of extensive computer analysis of published databases for the identification of the genus Staphylococcus. The dehydrated substrates in each well are reconstituted with a suspension of the organism, a colour change occurs during incubation or after the addition of specific reagents. The permutation of metabolised substrates can be interpreted using the Microgen ID System Software (MDMID-60) to identify the test organism.
