Differentiate S. aureus from Coagulase-Negative Staphylococci in 20 Minutes
Blood Culture Contains a GPCC, Infection or Contamination?
Why you need to know the difference
True infections with Staphylococcus aureus present considerable clinical challenges such as: increased mortality rates, prolonged hospital stays and additional costs. Blood culture contamination with Coagulase-Negative Staph (CoNS), on the other hand, leads to unnecessary coverage, extended length of stay and unnecessary hospital costs.1,2
