Microbiologists who have a low volume of anaerobic cultures
or who simply choose not to invest in an anaerobic chamber may opt for anaerobic jars or bags.
pneumoniae respectively from the three anaerobic culture
positive samples (Figure 2).
Technical limitations of anaerobic culture
arise mostly due to toxic oxygen exposure making isolation of anaerobes from clinical specimen quite difficult.
predominately grow in anaerobic culture
bottles, and clostridial sepsis usually affects elderly persons with abdominal conditions, malignancy, or immune suppression (11,12).
A large liver abscess was drained by using CT scans as a guide; samples of the liver abscess were submitted for aerobic and anaerobic culture
A review of our culture records indicated that virtually no significant microorganisms were isolated only from the anaerobic broth used to back up the anaerobic culture
The best specimen for anaerobic culture
is obtained by using a needle and syringe.
amnionii was previously recovered in anaerobic culture
of the amniotic fluid of a woman after intrauterine fetal demise (2).
Many case reports illustrate the value of obtaining anaerobic culture
of the peritoneal fluid when treatment-resistant peritonitis exists.
Typical examples of these are throat cultures for organisms other than beta hemolytic streptococci; identification of more than three pathogens in a specimen; cultures of oropharyngeal material, bowel contents, perirectal abscesses, decubiti, and Foley catheter tips, and anaerobic culture
of surface wounds; and antibiotic susceptibility determinations on obvious contaminants, commensal species from sites they normally inhabit, or species with predictable susceptibilities.
directly from specimen yielded similar spore-forming, gram-positive bacilli.

In view of septic thrombosis, anaerobic cultures
were advised but were found to be negative.
Aerobic and anaerobic cultures
were taken, with negative results.
All our patients with postoperative wound infections had repeated sterile aerobic and anaerobic cultures
