Value of extended agitation and subculture of BACTEC NR 660 aerobic resin blood culture bottles for clinical yeast isolates.

Abstract

From 10,351 blood cultures, we prospectively studied 1,000 BACTEC NR 660 aerobic resin blood culture bottles (26+ and Peds Plus) for patients suspected of having yeast septicemia to determine whether extended agitation and subculturing would increase the recovery of yeasts. Aerobic bottles were agitated continuously for 144 h. On day 7, 1,000 culture… (More)
