DADE MicroScan® Pos Combo Panel (Type 6/12) Gram + Biocodes 3/10/10 ID Biocodes have been selected for the following medically important species of " Staphylococci [Staphylococcus sp .]. Currently 32 species have been described and studied. ID biocodes have been selected for the following medically important species of “ Streptococci [Streptococcus sp ., Aerococcus sp . and Enterococcus sp .]. Currently 36 of the hundreds species have been extensively described and studied. Many streptococci can be classified by reactivity of antisera with specific types of polysaccharide in their cell walls - they are called “Landfield groups.” Lansfield grouping is often necessary for accurate identification. [Recently 16 species of the enteric group D strep have been moved from the genus Streptooccus to the genus Enterococcus .] The substitution of an “ X ” for a number in a biocode indicates that series of tests is not useful or needed for the identification of that particular species [i.e. it can vary from 0 to 7] "Microcococci" ( Micrococcus spp.) 000 --- --- = Micrococcus spp. - occur primarily on mammalian skin and in soil "Staphylococci" ( Staphylococcus spp.) 202 064 505 = Staphylococcus saprophyticus [lab strain KL31] 213 104 405 = Staphylococcus epidermidis [lab strain M187] 217 560 405 = Staphylococcus epidermidis [lab strain M187] 252 060 405 = Staphylococcus saprophyticus [lab strain KL31] 303 125 405 = Staphylococcus epidermidis [lab strain M187] 313 --- --- = Staphylococcus aureus 317 --- --- = Staphylococcus aureus - normal skin and nasopharangeal microbiota; pathogenic causative agent of wound infections, invasive diseases, and endocarditis 317 157 405 = S . aureus [lab strain chuck#4] 317 117/177 405 = S . aureus [lab strain chuck#3] 317 160 405 = S . aureus [lab strain chuck#4]
