Staphylococcus aureus is the cause of serious infections in humans, including endocarditis, deep-seated abscesses, and bacteremia, which lead to toxic and septic shock syndromes. Rapid and direct identification of this bacterium specifically and ubiquitously directly from clinical specimens would be useful in improving the diagnosis of S. aureus infections in the clinical microbiology laboratory. A wide variety of kits based on biochemical characteristics efficiently identify S. aureus, but the… CONTINUE READING
