Achromobacter

(a-krō'mō-bak'ter),
A gram-negative bacterial genus of uncertain clinical significance, closely related to members of the Alcaligenes and Ochrobactrum species.

Achromobacter

[akrō′mōbak′tər]
a genus of gram-negative, rod-shaped, flagellated bacteria that do not form pigment on agar. Most species in the genus are saprophytic, nonpathogenic organisms found in water, soil, or the human digestive tract, but they may cause infection in the compromised host.

Achromobacter

A genus of strictly aerobic rod-shaped bacteria, of the order Burkholderiales, whose motility results from 1–20 peritrichous flagella. They are found in soil and water.
