RevoDx Enterococcus Faecium
E. faecium cause a variety of infections, including endocarditis, urinary tract infections, prostatitis, intra-abdominal infection, cellulitis, and wound infection as well as concurrent bacteremia. Enterococci are part of the normal intestinal flora. For the most part, the bacteria are transmitted by people who work at the hospital, some of whom carry the E. faecium in their gut. Other times, enterococci are transmitted through medical devices.
Enterococci are Gram-positive facultative anaerobic cocci in short and medium chains commonly associated with nosocomial infections. The genome size of the E. faecium strains vary substantially from 2.50 Mb to 3.14 Mb.
