The aims of this study were to evaluate the performance of a new medium, desferrioxamine oxacillin tellurite egg-yolk mannitol salt agar (DOTEMSA) in detecting methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and then to compare this medium against the Public Health Laboratory Service (PHLS) recommendation of mannitol salt agar (Oxoid) with oxacillin (OMSA) and Baird-Parker medium with ciprofloxacin (BPC) for the isolation of MRSA. The individual selective agents contained in DOTEMSA were… CONTINUE READING
