Identification method positive blood culture bottles with MALDI Biotyper is the most important test on precisely and rapidly, for detamination the bacterial name in sepsis and bacteremia is very significant for decision a cure. This time, we devised a new method "blend" to identify the mixture hypostasis that were come into being by centrifuging blood culture broths and 70% formic acid with MALDI Biotyper (Bruker). This time, we identified 65 samples rapidly with MALDI biotyper by "on plate" and "blend," and verified their effectivity...

Temperature-stability of loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) reagents was determined for their use in on-site diagnosis, such as in farms/pastures. Bst and Csa DNA polymerases and the reagents that were stored at different temperatures (4 or 25°C) for 1, 2, or 4 days were used for the LAMP assay to detect orf virus DNA as a model. After storage at 4 and 25°C for 2 days, the enzymes and reagents were found to retain sufficient activity to carry out successful DNA amplification. Visual diagnosis was also possible with the reagents (Loopamp Fluorescent Detection Reagent or hydroxy naphthol blue, as well as DNA amplification checker, D-Quick) that were stored for 2 days at different temperatures...

A 65-year-old woman developed fever and dyspnea and visited the emergency department of our hospital. On arrival she was hypoxic, and chest CT showed bilateral centrilobular nodules, infiltrative shadows and bronchial wall thickening. Gram staining wasn't performed on admission, and the urinary antigen-detection test for Streptococcus pneumoniae couldn't be performed because the patient has suffered from anuria caused by renal failure. Therefore, we conducted S. pneumoniae antigen test (RAPIRUN® Streptococcus pneumoniae) using sputum sample, then rapidly diagnosed pneumococcal pneumonia due to the positive result of the rapid test...

Procalcitonin (PCT) was first described as a sepsis-associated protein in 1993. PCT is increased in the blood at the time of infection by bacteria. Therefore, it is used as an auxiliary indicator of sepsis diagnosis. In addition, PCT is reduced quickly by antibiotics. And use as a stop or change marker is also expected. We have investigated the antimicrobial use and microbial testing of measurement patient and PCT running performance. Number of requests was 3,387 cases (inpatient 2,649 and outpatient 742 cases) for one year...

Group B Streptococcus (GBS) are normal flora of the vagina and intestinal, but if the pregnant woman was infected with GBS in the vagina, miscarriage or premature would occur or the newborn would be developed to severe GBS infection. It is recommended that the inspection of GBS on all pregnant women by Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (JSOG) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We examined the comparison of detection rate between Pourmedia GBS agar (Eiken Chemical Co., Ltd.) and Nissui Separated Plate Sheep Blood Agar/BTB Lactose Agar medium (Nissui Pharmaceutical Co...

Immunochromatography viral antigen-detection kits have become popular in clinical settings in Japan. Influenza virus detection kit is one of them. It is sometimes used in early phase of the disease, combined with the early treatment with anti-influenza drugs. Most of them are invented to visually read the test line on their kits. However, we should be careful about their reliability of them. Sometimes human errors occur at the visual tests, and they have different sensitivities among the kits from different companies...

According to aging of population and medical progress, the risk and mortality rate of pneumonia have been increased. In the causative organism inspection, smear-culture examination of sputum is the gold standard. When it is difficult to obtain high quality sputum and to culture the causative organism, or when antibiotics are previously administered, we have no choice but to start the treatment with pathogenic bacteria unknown. In these cases, it is necessary to select an appropriate test method for expecting pathogen...

Because it is not easy to differentiate Influenza virus (Flu) from RS virus (RSV) just by clinical symptoms, to accurately diagnose those viruses in conjunction with patient's clinical symptoms, rapid diagnostic kits has been used separately for each of those viruses. In our new study, we have developed a new rapid diagnostic kit, QuickNavi™-Flu+RSV. The kit can detect Flu A, Flu B, and RSV antigens with a single sample collection and an assay. Total of 2,873 cases (including nasopharyngeal swabs and nasopharyngeal aspirates specimens) in 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 seasons were evaluated with QuickNavi™-Flu+RSV and a commercially available kit...

We have evaluated our new Norovirus rapid detection kit "QuickNavi™-Norovirus2" (Denka Seiken Co., Ltd.). The kit is based on Immunochromatographic method using colored latex particles. In addition to simple preparations giving quick (15 min) results, our newly developed kit enables specimen collection directly from rectum and can also be used with neonatal stool samples, both of which cannot be used with the current version of the kit, "QuickNavi™-Norovirus." Clinical study (stool samples, n=172) shows sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of the test compared to RT-PCR are 92...

Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) is an infectious disease requiring special attention. It is a common cause of nosocomial infections; catheter insertion into the central veins particularly increases the risk of infection (CLA-BSI: central line-associated bloodstream infection). We examined the relationship between the number of bacterial colonies cultured from shredded central venous catheter (CVC) tips and from blood cultures in our hospital from 2011 to 2012. Coagulase-negative staphylococci topped the list of microbe isolated from the CVC tip culture, followed by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, and Candida spp...

Recently, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) has been challenged for the identification of Nocardia species. However, the standard ethanol-formic acid extraction alone is insufficient in allowing the membrane proteins of Nocardia species to be ionized by the matrix. We therefore aimed to establish our new extraction method for the MALDI-TOF MS-based identification of Nocardia species isolates. Our modified extraction procedure is through dissociation in 0...
