Staphylococcus haemolyticus, Molecular Detection

Includes 1 test

Molecular testing for haemolytic Staphylococcus aureus is used for rapid and highly accurate laboratory documentation of infection or contamination of medical objects (catheters, tools, etc.) by the particular microorganism.

More information

Haemolytic Staphylococcus (Staphylococcus haemolyticus) is a Gram-positive, hemolytic, symbiotic bacterium, part of normal skin flora. The bacterial genome is a circular DNA chromosome of about 2.7 Mbp (million base pairs) with three plasmids ranging in size from 2.3 to 8.1 Kbp. Usually Staphylococcus haemolyticus causes skin and soft tissue infections that can lead to septicemia.

Transmission is usually through skin-to-skin contact but may also occur if people come into contact with infected equipment in hospitals. Hospital infections are often associated with biofilm formation which acts as a defense mechanism against the host's immune response or antibiotic therapy. Common clinical symptoms of Staphylococcus haemolyticus infections include fever and leukocyte growth (leukocytosis).




Important Note

Laboratory test results are the most important parameter for the diagnosis and monitoring of all pathological conditions. 70%-80% of diagnostic decisions are based on laboratory tests. Correct interpretation of laboratory results allows a doctor to distinguish "healthy" from "diseased".

Laboratory test results should not be interpreted from the numerical result of a single analysis. Test results should be interpreted in relation to each individual case and family history, clinical findings and the results of other laboratory tests and information. Your personal physician should explain the importance of your test results.

At Diagnostiki Athinon we answer any questions you may have about the test you perform in our laboratory and we contact your doctor to get the best possible medical care.
