Blood culture systems In this review, considerations on BC systems will be limited to those that may impact the performance sensitivity, specificity of BSI diagnosis. Rules for interpretation of positive BC results, and distinction between BSI and contamination, differ with the single-sampling strategy, as the information given by the proportion of positive BC sets at different times cannot be used.

Overall, manusl from modeling, as well as clinical studies are remarkably concordant: As o as possible, BCs should be obtained before the antimicrobial therapy is initiated.

For these microorganisms, at least 2 positive BCs yielding the same CoNS are usually required to consider the results as clinically significant, given that the likelihood that it represents true bacteremia as opposed to contamination increases with the number of positive bottles Weinstein, ; Reimer et al.

In addition, solitary BC makes it more difficult to distinguish contaminants from pathogens. Both confirmed the negative impact of the number of separate sampling on BC specificity.

This review provides an update on clinical and technical issues related to blood collection and to BC performance, with a special focus on the blood sample strategy to optimize the sensitivity and specificity of BCs. The French Society of Microbiology escmid-sdm that, in patients suspected of BSI, 4—6 bottles 2 to 3 sets of blood should be cultured, with adequate volume for each bottle. Conclusions BCs microbkology among the most common microbiological tests performed in and remain the first and essential diagnostic oc for detection of BSIs.

Limitations Despite these recommendations, several issues have been highlighted: D Raoult, G Cornaglia The principles of microbiological work and good laboratory practices: Comparing the yield of standard-volume BC mean, 8.

Pathology 46— In such a procedure, the detection depends on the bacterial density at time of samplings, and not all samples will turn positive. Clinical impact of reducing routine blood culture incubation time from 7 to 5 days. Conflict of interest statement The authors declare that the research was conducted in mahual absence of any commercial escmkd-sfm financial relationships that could be construed as maual potential conflict of interest. Compliance with guidelines and current caveats An increasing amount of data highlights the pre-analytical deficiencies of BC sampling which may compromise patient management by reducing BCs diagnostic yield Schifman et al.

The error margin is higher i. The contamination rate per draw has been estimated at 0. There are 52 chapters covering essential information in clinical microbiology. Evidence suggests that most cases of clinically significant BSI are associated with continuous bacteremia or fungemia over a 24 h period, but with very low concentrations of circulating microorganisms Jonsson et al. For optimal recovery, each BC set should include paired aerobic and anaerobic bottles, the aerobic bottle being filled first.

Published online May There are very few clinical studies directly evaluating the bacterial concentration in BSI, because this measurement requires the use of quantitative BC techniques, which are particularly labor-intensive, and not routinely used.

JAMA— Finally, as expected, the proportion of solitary BC rate was strikingly reduced by using the single-sampling strategy. It should be surveyed through systematic program, either internal or external to the microbiology lab, and should at least include the proportions of solitary BC, and of adequately filled BC bottles Schifman et al.

As they are based on similar literature data, guidelines from scientific societies are in agreement on most issues.

Blood culture result negative or positive according to the amount of blood cultured at each sampling and to the microbial burden in blood. The fertility of the culture media used in these systems is among the highest among broth media available in clinical microbiology.
