The organisms detected in the participants were coagulase positive and coagulase negative Staphylococcus aureus , Viridans streptococci, diphtheroids, micrococci
, bacteroides, and Klebsiella spp.
corynebacteria other than Corynebacterium diphtheriae), micrococci
(which include the staphylococci such as Staphylococcus epidermidis), streptococci (either alpha ([alpha]) or gamma ([gamma]) hemolytic), and the enterococci.
Sarcina, a spherical bacterium from micrococci
group, was identified in 76.
However, the large number of coagulase-negative staphylococci and micrococci
isolated may suggest contamination by personnel, as these are common skin commensals.
When possible contaminants (coagulase negative staphylococci, diphtheroids, micrococci
and Bacillus spp.
They observed that coagulase negative staphylococci and micrococci
dominate the skin surface.
were enumerated on mannitol salt agar (MSA, LuQiao, Beijing, China) after incubation at 37[degrees]C for 48 h.
They're known as micrococci
, and around 30 per cent of us have a nasty variety, Staphylococcus, breeding on our hands.
