  • The coagulase gene amplification discriminatory power relies on the heterogeneity of the region containing the 81 bp tandem repeats at the 3′ coding region of the coagulase gene which differs both in the number of tandem repeats and the location of AluI and HaeIII restriction sites among different isolates [ 5 ].

  • The aim of this study was to determine whether differences exist in the prevalence of icaAB genes and in the phenotypic and/or genotypic pattern between blood isolates of coagulase-negative staphylococci, interpreted as representing true bacteraemia, and contaminant isolates from patients with haematological malignancies.

  • bacterial
  • The normal practice of detecting S. epidermidis is by using appearance of colonies on selective media, bacterial morphology by light microscopy, catalase and slide coagulase testing. (wikipedia.org)
