Frequent environmental contaminants within microbiology laboratory create not only diagnostic dilemmas but also poses major risk for health care workers and patients. Objective of our study was to isolate and identify the common laboratory contaminant bacteria with an ultimate goal to reduce false positive culture reports as well as Laboratory acquired infections. The study was conducted in Microbiology laboratory of a tertiary care hospital over a period of six months. A total number of 100… 
Isolation and Identification of Common Contaminants Bacteria from Working Area in Microbiology Laboratory
TLDR
From the study, laboratory can be a potential source of contamination to give false positive results and caution should be taken to get rid of these organisms from laboratory by means of proper laboratory disinfection and sterilization as well as personal hygiene of laboratory workers.
Burden of bacterial contamination: A cross-sectional study to estimate the bacterial isolates from the surfaces of a bacteriology laboratory
TLDR
Vigilant disinfection and maintenance of personal hygiene of laboratory workers are essential to eliminate contamination in bacteriology laboratory setup.
Microbiological Assessment of Selected Laboratories at a Local University in Malaysia
Microbiological contaminations in the laboratories create not only diagnostic issues but also pose a major health risk to lab users. This study was conducted to determine the airborne microbial
Profiling of Microbial Contamination in Internal Atmosphere of Hospital Ward
TLDR
Proper ventilation and sanitization in the hospital wards with regular quality control would overcome the probability of hospital nosocomial infections thereby promoting safety of mother and infant health.
Contamination in a Microbiological Laboratory
TLDR
It is suggested that possible to reduce or eliminate contamination frequency and seriousness by visual inspection of the culture within a few days of it becoming infected.
Comparative Study of Infectious Risks in Diagnostic Laboratories between Public and Private Hospitals in Benin
TLDR
Though the hygiene level in the private labs was better than in public labs, the risk of lobaratory associated infections is rampant in both areas with respect to isolated organisms.
Short Communication: Serratia rubidaea as contaminant in laboratory environment
TLDR
The present research has shown that red-colored contaminant bacteria develop in unused sterile media in the laboratory, and this red contaminant bacterium was identified as Serratia rubidaea.
A Prospective, Randomized Comparison of Duodenoscope Reprocessing Surveillance Methods
TLDR
Two sampling methods are compared—the 2015 CDC interim protocol and an alternative protocol developed by the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics (UWHC), and it is hypothesized that the UWHC protocol would detect a higher incidence of bacterial contamination from reprocessed duodenoscopes.

Epidemiology and Clinical Significance of Blood Cultures Positive for Coagulase-Negative Staphylococcus
TLDR
It is found that coagulase-negative staphylococci grew in both aerobic and anaerobic bottles in 85% of blood culture sets drawn during episodes of bacteremia, but in only 30% of the cultures thought to be contaminated.
Rapid classification of positive blood cultures. Prospective validation of a multivariate algorithm.
TLDR
This model can help clinicians quantify the likelihood that a given positive blood culture represents a true positive when the laboratory first calls, which may be helpful in subsequent decision making.
