Pseudomonas print that page


Recently, 16S rRNA sequence analysis has redefined the taxonomy of many bacterial species. [ 1 ] As a result the genus Pseudomonas includes strains formerly classified in the genera Chryseomonas and Flavimonas . [ 2 ] Other strains previously classified in the genus Pseudomonas are

Burkholderia pseudomallei print that page


Chromobacterium violaceum or other non-fermenting gram-negative bacilli such as Burkholderia cepacia or Pseudomonas aeruginosa . [ 10 ] [ 11 ] Again, because the disease is rarely seen in western countries, identification of the bacterium B. pseudomallei in cultures may not actually trigger

Antimicrobial copper-alloy touch surfaces print that page

Touch surfaces that are in frequent use and that are not made with copper alloys can easily accumulate a variety of harmful microbes ( viruses , bacteria , etc.). These microbes can often survive on touch surfaces for surprisingly long periods of time (e.g., for more than 30 days on some popular

Phage therapy print that page


Bacteriophages are much more specific than antibiotics , so they can hypothetically be chosen to be indirectly harmless not only to the host organism (human, animal, or plant ), but also to other beneficial bacteria , such as gut flora , reducing the chances of opportunistic infections . They
