BioScience Laboratories, Inc. testing labs develops a new in-vitro biofilm model closely simulating a chronic wound for antimicrobial product testing. Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) July 29, 2013 BioScience Laboratories, Inc. (BSLI) testing labs develops new in-vitro biofilm model. The goal of this research project was to adapt the Colony/drip-flow biofilm reactor (C/DFR) by replacing the growing surface with a sample of sterilized pig skin to more closely emulate an actual wound. Chronic wounds...

These are some of the findings presented in the annual report on the occurrence of diseases that can be transmitted to humans from animal and food. The report is prepared by the Danish Zoonosis Centre at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark in collaboration with Statens Serum Institut and the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration. In 2012, 1,198 Danes were registered with a Salmonella infection, which corresponds to 21 cases per 100,000 citizens. It is a little...

The story begins with a problem - a virulent strain of a drug-resistant bacteria that was imported with the wounded from Afghanistan and spread through the United States. In cancer wards and other places where people with impaired immune systems were treated, this infection caused by the gram-negative bacterium, Acinetobacter baumannii, was particularly dangerous and it evaded the wiles of most known antibiotics. Infections caused by such gram-negative pathogens (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella...

Dutch researchers apply targeted sequencing for infection control and surveillance of drug-resistant 'superbugs'. Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 11, 2013 Pathogenica, Inc. announced that teams from the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) and Amphia Hospital in the Netherlands are pioneering the use of the company’s HAI BioDetection Kit to prevent and control nosocomial infections in their facilities. With approx. 1,400 beds each, both Amphia and UMCG are among the largest...

After a 2011 outbreak of P. aeruginosa, investigators at Beaumont Health System near Detroit, Michigan determined contaminated ultrasound gel was the source of bacteria causing the healthcare-associated infection. The findings emphasize the need for increased scrutiny of contaminated medical products. This study is published in the August issue of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America. "Ultrasound is a critical...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Marine microbes change swimming directions with a sideways flick of their lone flagellum, a type of high-speed controlled failure first documented in 2011 as a unique swimming stroke but whose underlying mechanism had eluded researchers until now. Bacteria swim by rotating the helical, hair-like flagella that extend from their unicellular bodies. Some bacteria, such as the Escherichia coli (E. coli) living in the human gut, have...

Wolbachia is a genus of bacteria which infects arthropod species, including a high proportion of insects (~60% of species). It is one of the world's most common parasitic microbes and possibly the most common reproductive parasite in biosphere. Studies have suggested that 25-70% of all insect species are estimated to be potential hosts. Marshall Hertig and Burt Wolbach first identified the bacterium in 1924 in a species of mosquito. Hertig described the genus as Wolbachia pipientis. Not...

Serratia marcescens is a species of Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium in the family Enterobacteriaceae. S. marcescens is involved in nosocomial infections particularly catheter-associated bacteremia. It is commonly found in respiratory and urinarty tracts of hospitalized adults and often in the gastrointestinal system of children. It is commonly found growing in bathrooms due to its preference for damp conditions. It manifests as a pink discoloration and a slimy film feeding off...

Salmonella enterica is a subspecies of Salmonella enterica, the rod shaped, flagellated, aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium. It is a member of the genus Salmonella and many of the pathogenic serovars of the S. enterica species are in this subspecies. Serovars can be designated fully or in a shortened form. The genus, Salmonella, is on the short form lists which are followed by the capitalized and non-italicized serovar. Each serovar can have many strains as well, which allows for a rapid...

Rickettsia rickettsii is a gram-negative bacterium native to the New World and causes the malady known as Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF). It is transmitted through the bit of an infected tick when it feeds on animals and humans. Humans are not necessary hosts in the rickettsia-tick life cycle but they can be. S. Burt Wolbach created the first detailed description of the etiologic agent in 1919. He recognized it as an intracellular bacterium seen most frequently in endothelial cells....

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common bacterium that can cause disease in animals and humans. It can be found in soil, water, skin flora, and most man-made environments throughout the world. It thrives in normal or hypoxic atmospheres; due to this it has colonized many natural and artificial environments. It can infect animals with damaged tissue or people with reduced immunity. Symptoms are generalized inflammation and sepsis. It can be fatal if colonization occurs in critical body organs,...
