- Impact of strain typing methods on assessment of relationship between paired nares and wound isolates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureusJill E Clarridge
Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Service, Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System, Seattle, Washington, USA
J Clin Microbiol 51:224-31. 2013..Twenty-five strains (30%) represented a single clade identical by PFGE, SCRA, and DL, decreasing specificity. Typing method and institutional type frequency are important in assessing MRSA strain relatedness...
- Site and clinical significance of Alloscardovia omnicolens and Bifidobacterium species isolated in the clinical laboratorySteven D Mahlen
U S Army Medical Corps with duty at the Department of Laboratory Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA
J Clin Microbiol 47:3289-93. 2009..breve isolates were from blood cultures. This study enlarges the spectrum of diseases and clinical sources associated with A. omnicolens and Bifidobacterium species and addresses identification problems...
- Significantly larger numbers of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria are recovered from polymicrobial respiratory and wound sites by use of chromogenic primary media than by use of conventional cultureAmanda T Harrington
Puget Sound Health Care System, Seattle, Washington, 1 and University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98108, USA
J Clin Microbiol 48:1350-3. 2010..Our data support the focused use of chromogenic selective media for the increased detection of MRSA in polymicrobial wound and respiratory specimens, which could have an impact on both clinical treatment and infection control...
- Isolation of Bordetella avium and novel Bordetella strain from patients with respiratory diseaseAmanda T Harrington
University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA
Emerg Infect Dis 15:72-4. 2009..However, 16S rRNA gene sequencing identified 2 isolates from 2 humans with respiratory disease as B. avium and a novel B. avium-like strain. Thus, B. avium and B. avium-like organisms are rare opportunistic human pathogens...
- Evaluation of a selection strategy before use of 16S rRNA gene sequencing for the identification of clinically significant gram-negative rods and coccobacilliSteven D Mahlen
Department of Laboratory Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, USA
Am J Clin Pathol 136:381-8. 2011..The knowledge that 1.6% (ie, 79% of 2%) of isolated GNRCB might benefit from sequence identification could provide guidelines for routine clinical laboratories toward efficient use of sequence analysis...

VA Puget Sound Health Care System, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Seattle, WA 98108, USA
J Med Microbiol 61:590-2. 2012..The isolate was resistant to clindamycin, which was the antibiotic therapy that the patient received...
- Thumb infection caused by Streptococcus pseudoporcinusSteven D Mahlen
Department of Laboratory Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
J Clin Microbiol 47:3041-2. 2009..This case describes a rarely reported non-genitourinary tract clinical isolate of S. pseudoporcinus...
