COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT BLOOD PLASMA AND CULTURE MEDIA FOR COAGULASE PRODUCTION BY METHICILLIN RESISTANT AND SENSITIVE STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUSK. RAJADURAIPANDI, K. PANNEER SELVAM AND K. RA VIKUMAR
The variation in coagulase enzyme production and clotting blood plasma by methicillin resistant f-MRSA) and sensitive (IVISSA) strains of Staphylococcus aureus was studied after growing them in various -_-_ilture media (brain heart infusion broth, tryptone phosphate broth and peptone broth) and analyzing with --:ifferent blood plasma (rabbit, sheep, pig and human). High number of test MASA and VISSA isolates from dirti(241 specimens and carrier samples had maximum coagualse activity when grown in brain heart infusion broth.. Similarly, more than 90% of the test isolates could clot human plasma preferably. Determination of coagulase production by S. aureus may be a rapid and cost effective method of identifying these pathogens from clinical specimens and carrier samples.
