Many case reports show the value of obtaining anaerobic culture
of the peritoneal fluid when treatment-resistant peritonitis exists.
Additional microbiological workup was ordered on wound specimens collected using sterile swabs and anaerobic culturettes for both aerobic and anaerobic cultures
, along with acid fast stains and cultures.
Postoperative aerobic and anaerobic cultures
were negative and she clinically was doing well.
coli, yeast, both aerobic and anaerobic cultures
, other bacterial fungi, algae, and insect cell cultures.
Owing to improvements in our ability to obtain and preserve anaerobic cultures
, an increasing number of anaerobic bacteria have been isolated from PTA cultures, including Bacteroides fragilis and Bacteroides melaninogenicus, a common oral anaerobe.
The tech assigned to old aerobic/anaerobic cultures
found it particularly difficult meeting her early morning deadline, even though anaerobic cultures
could be read later in the morning.
The recovery of this unusual organism highlights the importance of requesting anaerobic cultures
of biopsy specimens.
The aspirate was evaluated by Gram's stain, aerobic and anaerobic cultures
, and Warthin-Starry silver staining (figure 3).
The laboratory had taken every possible precaution, and my research even revealed that the anaerobic cultures
were processed in a different incubator--not the malfunctioning one.
should be obtained in cases of meningitis associated with chronic otitis and/or mastoiditis, chronic sinusitis, and pharyngeal suppuration.
6) Given that the anterior ethmoid labyrinth was open to the nasal cavity following surgery, anaerobic cultures
were not obtained.
