Evaluation of a lysis direct plating method for pediatric blood cultures

, : Evaluation of a lysis direct plating method for pediatric blood cultures. Journal of Clinical Microbiology 21(6): 955-958

The Isolator 1.5 Microbial tube (E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., Inc., Wilmington, Del.) is a commercially available blood culture system for use in pediatrics. The methodology is based on blood lysis followed by direct plating of the sample on culture media to detect bacteria and fungi. Comparative recovery rates of pathogens from blood collected in this and a conventional broth system were similar. The Isolator detected 104 of 120 clinically significant isolates, whereas 106 of 120 isolates were detected by the broth system. The major advantage of the Isolator methodology was early detection of septicemia. Initial detection of gram-negative bacteria occurred an average of 14.2 h earlier by the Isolator system than by the conventional broth method. The Isolator also permitted quantitation of bacteremia and fungemia. Probable contaminants were recovered from 10.0% of the cultures processed by the Isolator, but steps which could be taken to minimize this problem were identified. The Isolator is a useful method for pediatric blood cultures.

Two further leaf-blight resistant hybrids, Ind. 872 and Ind. 828, in addition to Ind. 851, Ind. 873 and Ind. 874, have been developed. All five are double hybrids, which yield well in the presence or absence of leaf blights.
