Gonorrhea culture media

The present article describes the laboratory diagnosis of Gonorrhea culture media gonorrhoeae by culturing of the organism from different types of clinical specimens followed by confirmatory tests. The success of culture methods requires good quality collection and transport of clinical specimens. The present guide describes the media requirements and cultural conditions for N gonorrhoeae growth and the characteristics for a presumptive identification of N gonorrhoeae. Confirmatory tests include biochemical tests, chromogenic enzyme substrate tests, immunoassays and nucleic acid methods. Nucleic acid detection methods include either Password acces xxx methods or nonamplification tests, and are increasingly used in clinical laboratories where a viable culture is not possible to obtain. Nucleic acid methods can also be used to detect the presence of low numbers in a specimen. Nucleic acid detection methods need confirmation with another amplification method or gene target. Controls must be included to ensure true positive and negative results, and to rule out nucleic acid contamination. Monitoring of antimicrobial susceptibilities of N gonorrhoeae is important to investigate treatment failure and to evaluate the efficacy of currently recommended therapies. Many methods for the characterization of N gonorrhoeae require cultures. The useful typing methods for determining strain relatedness Salma hayek breast surgery auxotyping, serotyping, plasmid profile analysis, DNA sequencing of the porB gene and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Quality assurance programs for diagnostic testing and antimicrobial susceptibility testing is reviewed. Neisseria gonorrhoeae is an obligate human pathogen and is the etiological agent of gonorrhea. Syndromes include cervicitis in women, and urethritis, pharyngitis and proctitis in both sexes. If untreated, women may experience severe sequelae of pelvic inflammatory disease, chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancy and tubal infertility, while Gonorrhea culture media may develop epididymitis, prostatitis and urethral stricture 1. Occasionally, some individuals may develop disseminated infections with systemic complications, while others may...

The cultivation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae by use of fastidious broth FB was evaluated. FB was found to be able to support the growth of all N. Similar growth of the wild-type strain and its target-altered quinolone-resistant derivatives was observed. The susceptibilities of laboratory-adapted strains and clinical isolates to quinolones were tested by the microdilution method using FB. Moreover, the concentration-dependent time-kill of quinolones such as gatifloxacin and ciprofloxacin was observed in FB. At 2 to 4 times the MIC, gatifloxacin and ciprofloxacin were predominantly bactericidal against N. At the MIC, the activities of both quinolones ranged from bactericidal to bacteriostatic. These results suggest that the cultivation of N. Neisseria gonorrhoeae is one of the causatives of sexually transmitted diseases, and it is a fastidious organism. Before the s, a number of studies were published regarding the liquid culture methodology for N. However, these reports demonstrated that the number of bacteria decreased rapidly after bacterial exponential growth, and broth microdilution methods for susceptibility testing of N. Recently, the antibacterial activity of antigonococcal agents against clinical isolates of N. Quinolones initially appeared to be promising agents for the treatment of N. Therefore, the evaluation of the antibacterial susceptibility of N. However, these approaches are tedious, time-consuming, and inconvenient, especially in the investigation of the antimicrobial susceptibility of large numbers of isolates and of the activities of many antimicrobial agents. The broth microdilution method and the growth method using liquid culture for the inoculum preparation are both simple methods to test the susceptibilities of clinical isolates; however, they have not yet been established for testing the susceptibility of N. To date, few studies have been reported regarding the susceptibilities of antibacterial-resistant N. Therefore, the in vitro PK model, which can simulate human PK, is rapidly becoming one of the most important examinations in...

Dec 13, Author: N gonorrhoeae causes the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea, among other diseases. Neisseria gonorrhoeae culture results in uninfected persons are negative, meaning no growth. In men, the best specimen for N gonorrhoeae culture is urethral exudate or urethral scrapings obtained with a loop or special swab. Throat or rectal cultures in men are needed only when indicated by sexual practices. In women, cervical swabs are preferred over urethral or vaginal specimens. The combination of a cervical and an anal canal culture return the highest diagnostic yield in women, since some patients with rectal gonorrhea have negative cervical culture results. Laboratory requests must specify the suspicion of gonorrhea so that media that satisfy the nutritional requirements of the gonococcus and inhibit competing normal flora can be seeded. The selective medium eg, Martin—Lewis agar is an enriched selective chocolate agar with antibiotics. The exact formulation has changed over the years but includes agents active against gram-positive bacteria vancomycin , gram-negative bacteria colistin, trimethoprim , and fungi nystatin, anisomycin at concentrations that do not inhibit N gonorrhoeae. They may be identified as Neisseria by demonstration of typical Gram stain morphology and a positive oxidase test result. Gonorrhea is a common N gonorrhoeae infection that is transmitted almost exclusively by sexual contact or perinatally and primarily affects the mucous membranes of the urethra and cervix and, less frequently, those of the rectum, oropharynx, and conjunctivae. Ascending genital infection in women leads to endometritis and salpingitis —collectively called pelvic inflammatory disease PID , the predominant complication and one of the most common causes of female infertility. Other manifestations of N gonorrhoeae infection include acute epididymitis ; ophthalmitis; disseminated infection with arthritis, dermatitis, and sometimes endocarditis; and transmission to the neonate with attendant conjunctivitis ophthalmia neonatorum. N gonorrhoeae culture is indicated in the diagnosis...

Neisseria gonorrhoeae , also known as gonococcus singular , or gonococci plural is a species of gram-negative diplococci bacteria isolated by Albert Neisser in It is oxidase positive, aerobic, and it survives within neutrophils. It exhibits antigenic variation through recombination of its pili and surface proteins that interact with the immune system. Sexual transmission is possible through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Reinfection is possible due to N. Untreated infection in women may cause pelvic inflammatory disease and possible infertility due to the resulting scarring. Neisseria species are fastidious Gram-negative cocci that require nutrient supplementation to grow in laboratory cultures. Neisseria are facultatively intracellular and typically appear in pairs diplococci , resembling the shape of coffee beans. Nesseria is non-spore forming, non-motile and an obligate aerobe requires oxygen to grow. Of the 11 species of Neisseria that colonize humans, only two are pathogens. This agar preparation facilitates the growth of Neisseria species while inhibiting the growth of contaminating bacteria and fungi. Martin Lewis and New York City are other types of selective chocolate agar commonly used for neisseria growth. On its surface, N. The pili mediate adherence, movement, and DNA exchange. The Opa proteins interact with the immune system, as do the Porins. Lipooligosaccharide LPS is an endotoxin that provokes an immune response. All are antigenic and all exhibit antigenic variation see below. The pili exhibit the most variation. The pili, Opa proteins, porins, and even the LOS have mechanisms to inhibit the immune response, making asymptomatic infection possible. Dynamic polymeric protein filaments called type IV pili allow N. To enter the host the bacteria uses the pili to adhere to and penetrate mucosal surfaces. Pili extend and attach to a substrate that signals the pilus to retract, dragging the cell forward. The resulting movement is referred to as...

Because investigations of sexual abuse may be initiated on the basis of a laboratory diagnosis of gonorrhea, it is important that only strains of N. Several Neisseria and related species may be misidentified as N. The purpose of this, and other, pages in this section is to provide information, including illustrations, of characteristics of N. This page is designed to provide information relating to the accurate identification of N. Because of the serious social and medicolegal consequences of misdiagnosing gonorrhea or misidentifying strains of N. Three levels of diagnosis are defined on the basis of clinical findings or the results of laboratory diagnostic tests. A definitive diagnosis of gonorrhea must be obtained for medicolegal purposes. A Presumptive diagnosis of gonorrhea is made on the basis of one of the following three criteria:. It should be noted that these definitions, which are intended for clinical care, are much more precisely worded than those of the Case Definition of gonorrhea intended for Public Health Surveillance purposes. Freshly isolated strains of N. T1 colonies predominate in the first culture of an isolate; in subsequent subcultures, T3 colonies predominate and T1 colonies may not be observed. Gonococcal colonies may vary in appearance as shown in the T3 colonies pictured here. The clear, golden-brown pigmentation apparent after incubation for 48 h. Compare with those of N. Although strains of some organisms do not grow on medium on which polysaccharide is detected, polysaccharide may be detected in the growth inoculated onto the plate. Depending on the acid detection test used, several strains of Neisseria and related species may be misidentified as N. Supplemental tests which permit differentiation among gram-negative diplococci that produce acid only from glucose. Although enzyme substrate tests are intended to be used only for the identification of Neisseria spp. Thus, additional tests must...

Thayer-Martin agar (or Thayer-Martin medium) is a Mueller-Hinton agar with 5% chocolate sheep blood and antibiotics. It is used for culturing and primarily isolating pathogenic Neisseria bacteria, including Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Neisseria meningitidis, as the medium inhibits the growth of most other microorganisms. Thayer-Martin agar is a chocolate agar plate (heated blood agar) containing nutrients and antimicrobials (vancomycin, colistin, nystatin, and trimethoprim). This agar preparation facilitates the growth of Neisseria species while inhibiting the growth of contaminating bacteria and fungi. Neisseria gonorrhoeae is one of the causatives of sexually transmitted diseases, and it is a fastidious organism. This organism is typically cultured using an agar medium such as chocolate agar plate (GCII agar base with 1% IsoVitaleX [BBL] and purified hemoglobin).
