85764-9Staphylococcus sp DNA [Presence] by NAA with non-probe detection in Positive blood cultureActive

Term Description

Qualitative detection of nucleic acid sequences in Staphylococcus species DNA in positive blood culture specimens by target amplification and non-probe detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. This assay does not differentiate between Staphylococcus species. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the submitter's test kit, FilmArray Blood Culture Identification panel v2.

Part Description

LP19642-5   Staphylococcus sp
Staphylococci, members of the family Micrococcaceae, are Gram-positive cocci that grow in irregular grape-like clusters. Traditionally, Staphylococci are divided into two groups: coagulase-positive and coagulase-negative Staphylococci (CoNS). The coagulase-positive group includes the well-known pathogen S. aureus, whereas the coagulase-negative group includes a number of species that are known commensals on skin. It is clear that even the CoNS are true pathogens, especially in patients with indwelling devices, and given their prevalence, are common causes of bacteremia. S. aureus is known for causing a number of superficial skin infections (boils, furuncles, impetigo, etc), but it can also cause more serious infections, especially in immunosuppressed patients including pneumonia, deep abscesses, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, and meningitis. Multiple antibiotic resistance is increasingly common in both S. aureus and CoNS, with the emergence of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) able to reach epidemic levels.
