This study evaluated the possible advantages provided by a genotypic method over commercially available biochemical systems for the identification of clinical isolates of coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). Partial sequencing of the sodA gene was performed for 168 coagulase-negative clinical isolates of staphylococci identified previously with the ID32 STAPH system. Of these, 101 (60.1%) were identified to the species level with ID32 STAPH, while 67 (39.9%) were misidentified or not… CONTINUE READING
