Yield of blood cultures in relation to the cultured blood volume in Bactec 6A bottles

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Concentration of microorganisms in blood is low in bacteremia from extravascular sources. The best yield from blood cultures is achieved by culturing a minimun of 10-20 ml, although in some processing blood culture systems such as Bactec NR-860, smaller volume is used. The objectives of the present study were to establish the frequency in which inadequate small blood volumes are employed for culturing and to analyze the relation between the cultured blood volume in Bactec 6A bottl...
