Actinomyces odontolyticus is an anaerobic, facultative capnophilic
, gram-positive, nonsporulating, non--acid fast, non-motile, irregularly staining bacterium.
However, the real incidence of UTI caused by capnophilic E.
Because no breakpoints are available for antimicrobial agents against capnophilic strains of E.
BOSTON, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Anoxomat(TM) Mark II anaerobic system for the cultivation of anaerobic, microaerophilic, and capnophilic
bacteria is an excellent alternative to the use of anaerobic chambers and gas bags currently used in clinical laboratories.
After incubation for 48 h in either an aerobic or capnophilic
atmosphere, >1,000 CFU/mL were observed on Columbia agar plates containing 5% sheep blood (BD Stacker Plates, BBL, Franklin Lakes, NJ, USA).
