AIMS To evaluate the BBL Crystal MRSA ID System for detection of oxacillin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus. METHODS 52 methicillin resistant S aureus (MRSA) from five different countries and 85 methicillin susceptible S aureus (MSSA) were included. The species was confirmed by tube coagulation and detection of the clumping factor using the Staphaurex… CONTINUE READING
