Gram negative bacteria

Bacterial infections account for a large proportion of people admitted to hospitals every year as well as some acquired by patients already in medical care. These can be caused by the ingestion of contaminated food or the exposure to nonsterile environments through wounds where opportunistic pathogenic bacteria are present. The symptoms and treatment vary and although some clues can be obtained from the patient’s symptoms, the causative agent needs to be determined in order for a complete understanding of the nature of infection, its origin, and the appropriate treatment. It is therefore of immense importance to characterize and identify these bacteria.
The Cypress Diagnostics Bacterial Identification System: Gram Negative (Bis-Neg) kit is a standardized identification panel for common Gram negative bacteria, consisting of 24 miniaturized biochemical tests.
