Resumo

DRUMMOND, Marina Rovani et al. Detection of Bartonella henselae in defibrinated sheep blood used for culture media supplementation. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2011, vol.42, n.2, pp.430-432. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822011000200003.

Bartonella henselae was detected in defibrinated sheep blood employed in supplementing a selective bacteria culture medium by nested PCR. We recommended that highly sensitive technical tests be run to ensure a sterile culture medium for Bartonella spp. isolation, since infected blood samples used in preparation could lead to false-positive results.

Palavras-chave : Bartonella; Culture Media; False Positive Reactions; Polymerase Chain Reaction; Sheep-Blood Contamination.
