  • Essay On Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

    Pseudomonas Aeruginosa also known as P. aeruginosa is a potential and commonly lethal cause of gram-negative infections (McCarthy, 2015). Infections resulting from P. aeruginosa are related with high rate of mortality and morbidity (Mizuta et al., 2006). Regrettably, the rise in P. aeruginosa resistance increasingly complicates decisions concerning treatment and leads to possible delays in suitable empirical dual antimicrobial therapy (Mizuta et al., 2006). However, early empirical dual antimicrobial therapy is one possible option that can be used that can lead to one selected agent that can be active against a pathogen that is causing infection (Tamma, Cosgrove & Maragakis, 2012). Dual antimicrobial therapy is normally utilized when infection…

  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Research Paper

    organism can be identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa). This organism is an opportunistic pathogen that can infect non-mammalian, plants, and humans. P. aeruginosa belongs to the bacterial family Pseudomonadaceae, and is a gram-negative rod that approximately measures 0.5 to 0.8 µm by 1.5 to 3.0 µm. It can normally be found in water and soil. Its single polar flagellum makes it motile, and it is known to be one of the fastest swimming bacteria found in hay infusion and pond water…

  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

    DISCUSSION: Pseudomonas aeruginosa was selected to study their antimicrobial activity due to the production of pyocyanin, an antimicrobial phenazine pigment. For this study different clinical specimen were collected and from these P. aeruginosa was isolated. To isolate good pyocyanin producing P. aeruginosa, repeated plating of all the isolates on cetrimide agar helped in final selection of the 5 isolates. To examine the antimicrobial activity of those isolates, in vitro inhibition by cross…

  • Type 3 Secretion System Lab Report

    Plasmid Interference in Regulation of the Type III Secretion System in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an opportunistic pathogen, commonly colonizes patients with cystic fibrosis (1) and contributes to a sizeable proportion of antibiotic-resistant nosocomial infections (2). Acute P. aeruginosa infections are characterized by the expression of the type III secretion system (T3SS) comprised of a needle-like apparatus used to inject exoenzymes into neighboring cells (1, 3). These…

  • Gram Negative Bacteria

    The purpose of the unknown experiment is to understand and identify a gram positive and a gram negative. Bacteria can be very helpful in clinical uses and many pharmaceutical drugs are based on the organism. Knowing how a bacterium works and how it is structured can be crucial to determine how it affects each individual. Several biochemical tests were performing to separate and determine the identities of the microorganisms. Broth tube number 31 containing unknown microorganisms. One of the…

  • Healthcare-Associated Infection Control Protocols: A Case Study

    Introduction With patient safety being at the forefront of hospitals’ priority, it’s imperative for administration to implement infection control protocols. The practice of preventive measures along with staff education is necessary in the reduction of hospital liability, extended inpatient stays and loss in revenue. Although some strategies are standard throughout hospital organizations, data and con-stant monitoring of these procedures will provide insight into compliant areas or those that…

  • Mario F Pedero Case Study

    Section 1: Tests used to identify unknown pathogen Mario F. Pedero a 30-year-old male visited his physician complaining of painful bumps and soars on his leg. The patient was diagnosed with HIV + 5 years ago. Due to his diagnosis, cutaneous disorders may manifest from the condition itself, or it can lead to opportunistic infections or infections that are more extensive than normal. The patient was sent to the emergency room were the physical examination revealed skin redness, papule lesions, and…

  • Pseudomonas Research Paper

    Introduction: The name Pseudomonas is derived from the greek and latin words which means “false unit“ (pseudo = false, greek; monas = single unit, latin). “Monas” was used in the early history of microbiology to define single-celled organisms. In 1786 Otto Friedrich Müller, from Copenhagen, classified the bacteria and named the pseudomonads, they came into the group of vibriones (which was defined as group of shaking bacteria). Many years later it was detected that Pseudomonas are motile. They…

  • Antimicrobial Agents Against Microorganisms

    (Willey et al, 2011). From the results in table1, it is shown that that Pseudomonas aeuruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus were both destroyed by of ethanol(70%) at all time set intervals of (1, 2, 5, 10 and 15 minutes). Ethanol has different capabilities as revealed in the lab experiment. . Due to its rapid evaporation nature, ethanol is an intermediate limited level germicide with restricted contact time and limited ability to infiltrate the organic matter. The results from the experiment at…

  • Gram Staining Lab

    Information about the Bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa During microbiology lab, an unknown bacteria culture in liquid broth was assigned to be identified by conducting a series of various tests. Nearly twenty different tests were conducted on the bacteria, but the most important of these was Gram staining test, gelatin stab test, and oxidase test. The results of these three tests allowed for the determination of the bacteria genus and species. The first test conducted was Gram staining. In the…
