Detection of bacteriuria by leukocyte esterase, nitrite, and the automicrobic system.
The predictive value for detection of significant bacteriuria was determined for use of the Chemstrip leukocyte esterase-nitrite dipstick (LN) and the Vitek Automicrobic System (AMS) using aExpand
Clinical assessment of anaerobic isolates from blood cultures.
Patients at two tertiary-care medical centers were evaluated to determine the clinical significance of anaerobic isolates from their blood specimens and to identify whether aerobic and/or anaerobicExpand
Increased recovery of group B Streptococcus by the inclusion of rectal culturing and enrichment.
Detection of intrapartum carriage of group B streptococcus (GBS) and subsequent antibiotic prophylaxis may prevent GBS infections in neonates. Because the gastrointestinal tract is the primary sourceExpand
