Protocol for Detection of Biofilms on Needleless Connectors (NC) Attached to Central Venous Catheters ;R. M. Donlan, R. Murga, M. Bell, C. M. Toscano, J. H. Carr, T. J. Novicki, C. Zuckerman, L. C. Corey, and J. M. Miller:
The predominant organism isolated from NCs collected from the bone marrow transplant center was Staphylococcus epidermidis (6 of 24 samples), a common skin organism. S. epidermidis has also been commonly isolated from biofilms of indwelling medical devices (2). Several other coagulase-negative staphylococci, including S. hominis subsp. hominis (3 of 24), S. haemolyticus (3 of 24), and S. xylosus (1 of 24) were also isolated. Micrococcus luteus (2 of 24), other Micrococcus spp. (1 of 24), Kocuria kristinae (1 of 24), Curtobacterium spp. (1 of 24), and Klebsiella pneumoniae (2 of 24) were also found. Bacillus spp., a common soil organism not usually isolated from indwelling medical devices, was found in only 1 of 24 samples.
