Abstract

SUMMARY

We evaluated a new fluorescent monoclonal antibody reagent for confirmation of identity of . The reagent correctly identified all 161 fresh clinical isolates of , which included 11 penicillinase producing strains (PPNG). The reagent also correctly identified 21 stored PPNG strains. No cross reactions were seen with 58 fresh clinical isolates of , 12 stored strains of , or with strains of , lactobacilli, spp., or Enterobacteriaceae. Some cross reaction was noted with strains of , probably related to cell-wall protein A. However, this reagent was highly sensitive and specific for use against oxidase positive, gramnegative cocci isolated in London.
