$100.00

Contact Hours (Points): 10

The aerobic and facultative gram-positive bacilli include a wide variety of organisms, including those commonly found on the skin (i.e.,”diphtheroids”) as well as recognized human pathogens. This revised course addresses the clinical significance and identification of these organisms, including Listeria, Erysipelothrix, Corynebacterium species, Gardnerella vaginalis and lactobacilli. The genus Bacillus and new genera of spore-forming bacteria are also discussed, as is the recognition and identification of Bacillus anthracis and closely related bacteria. This genus-packed course provides in-depth information and characteristics for the identification of newly described pathogenic gram-positive rods.
