Staphylococcus Aureus Biochemical Tests Results
Of course!: Our immune systems are designed to fight off most infections, including s. Aureus. This is a very common bacterium on our skin and is generally kept in check by our immune systems. ...Read more
Is everywhere: The bacteria is a natural "inhabitant" of the skin. Sometimes it overgrows (for lack of hygiene, decrease in the natural defense of the body, or having a more agressive mutation of the bacteria) and it produces infection. Most commonly these infections are in the skin but it can affect almost every organ (bone, heart, blood infections, ect). ...Read more

Please am asking about urine test, microscopy general and sensitivity test. What is the result of staphylococcus aureus isolated?
Advice please? I had a swab done and test results came back positive for coagulase - negative staphylococcus?
Normal skin bug:
It is a bacterium normally present on the skin.
Where was the swab taken from and why?
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Differentiate between staphylococcus and streptococcus species in terms of Morphology, Biochemical test and Culture?
Staph vs Strep: This is a complex subject that is not conducive to extensive discussion here. Suggest you get a microbiology text. Staphylococci are larger and grow more in clumps than chains. Staph that produce coagulase are species aureus, the others are a wide variety of less pathogenic organisms except for lugdenensis which has characteristics of aureus in producing disease. ...Read more
Sputum shows staphylococcus aureus & test repted I had a large pe 5 months ago & still havin breathin problems & tests I'm very wheezy this morning?
Asthmatic bronchitis: You may have asthmatic bronchitis. The staph cultured in your sputum may be a colonization rather than the offending organism but I feel you need evaluation by your md to check for pneumonia or recurrent embolism. Antibiotics and inhaler therapy are most likely needed. ...Read more

I had a saddle embolis 4 months ago, did sputum sample& gp wants to repeat the test cos they found staphylococcus aureus wots this & cud it be serious?
Pneumonia?: It depends on whether there's concern for pneumonia based on fever, respiratory symptoms, and chest x-ray or ct findings. No one has sterile sputum; bacteria will always grow from a sputum culture, and that can include staph in healthy people who were colonized with it. If you're not sick, there's probably little to worry about. But if you have pneumonia, then the result might be important. ...Read more
Hi Doc, had UTI test. Result: Epithelial cells 1-2/HPF, pus Cells 2-3/HPF, colony count 100, 000 cfu/ml. Organism Isolated:Staphylococcus saprophyticus?
Possible UTI: The organism you described is a skin contaminant and is not considered a pathological bacteria it is not the bacteria that has given you a bladder infection. If you have pain on urination or pain around the belly you may have a bladder infection these values in your urine analysis are not diagnostic of a UTI. ...Read more
A throat culture test I had showed staphylococcus aureus. Should I undergo antibiotic treatment or have my tonsils removed? Thank you!
I don't think so: Maybe half of humankind have some strain or other of this bug on board. I've always had some of them when I've bothered to culture my throat. People forget that many bacteria, even many of those capable of causing disease, are ordinary members of our microbial community. Staph's more of a problem for that pilonidal cyst -- the microbe likes to infect these. Get your surgery if required. ...Read more
Staph aureus: Staph aureus is a common bacteria that practically all of us have on our skin. This is called colonization. There are some staph that are more resistant to antibiotics and these are categorized as MRSA or methicilin resistant staph aureus. These can also be colonized on your body. Either type (s) can cause disease and it can be very severe depending on the location, even causing death from sepsis. ...Read more
Reverse is true: Staph. Is a very common bacteria found in our everyday environment. Some people even carry it in their nose and don't even know it! It doesn't become a problem until it gets into a break on the skin and causes infection. An infected wound won't heal until the body's immune system can kill and remove all bacteria which is dramatically improved with antibiotics. ...Read more
Diffusion: Thank you for being candid about your writing a science paper. This is a very basic question about microbiology, and you'd be doing yourself a favor to go to a good textbook of microbiology and learn the essentials rather than try to get answers piecemeal from physicians. ...Read more
Many foods: Staph aureus food poisoning diarrhea and severe abdominal pain, starting within 30 minutes to 8 hours of eating the contaminated food and lasting about 1 day. Common foods at risk are salads made with mayonnaise and eggs, cream filled pastries, but any food that is not served at the recommended temperature can harbor the bacteria. ...Read more
