Abstract

Transfusion-associated bacterial sepsis is the most common microbiological risk of transfusion and is caused mostly by platelet concentrates (PCs). The most frequently identified bacterial contaminants of PCs are coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). In order to learn more about the distribution, source and risk of the CNS that are involved in bacterial contamination of PCs, CNS strains isolated during platelet screening were collected and characterized to the species level with three different methods: 16S rRNA and gene sequencing, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis. AFLP analysis was also used for the typing of the CNS strains. A total of 83 CNS strains were analysed by sequencing and 8 different CNS species were identified, with being the predominant species. MALDI-TOF MS and AFLP analysis confirmed these results to a large extent. However, MALDI_TOF MS could not identify all strains to the species level and AFLP analysis revealed an additional, likely novel, CNS species. The species identified are mainly recognized as being part of the normal skin flora. Typing of the CNS strains by AFLP analysis showed that there was not a unique strain which is significantly more often present during bacterial contamination of PCs.
