Types of Staphylococcus

MRSA Super ​bug​
MRSA Super ​bug​

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that causes infections in different parts of the body. It's tougher to treat than most strains of staphylococcus aureus -- or staph-- because it's resistant to some commonly used antibiotics.

Staphylococcus ​Capitis​

Staphylococcus capitis is a coagulase-negative species (CoNS) of Staphylococcus. It is part of the normal flora of the skin of the human scalp, face, neck, and ears and has been associated with prosthetic valve endocarditis, but is rarely associated with native valve infection.

Staphylococcus ​Caprae​
Staphylococcus ​Caprae​

Staphylococcus caprae is a Gram-positive, coccus bacteria and a member of the genus Staphylococcus. S. caprae is coagulase-negative. It was originally isolated from goats (caprae means "of a goat"), but members of this species have also been isolated from human samples.

Staphylococcus ​Felis​

Staphylococcus felis is a Gram-positive, coagulase-negative member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of clustered cocci. It demonstrates limited hemolytic activity, but is does show evidence of urease activity and the ability to use sucrose, mannose, and trehalose.

Staphylococcus ​Haemolyticus​
Staphylococcus ​Haemolyticus​

Staphylococcus haemolyticus is a member of the coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS). It is part of the skin flora of humans, and its largest populations are usually found at the axillae, perineum, and inguinal areas.

Staphylococcus ​Hominis​
Staphylococcus ​Hominis​

Staphylococcus hominis is a coagulase-negative member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus, consisting of Gram-positive, spherical cells in clusters. It occurs very commonly as a harmless commensal on human and animal skin and is known for producing thioalcohol compounds that contribute to body odour.

Staphylococcus ​Hyicus​
Staphylococcus ​Hyicus​

Staphylococcus hyicus is a Gram-positive member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of clustered cocci. Originally isolated from skin infections in pigs and named Micrococcus hyicus, the species was moved to its present genus on the basis of phenotypic similarities. S. hyicus is a known animal pathogen.

Staphylococcus ​Kloosii​
Staphylococcus ​Kloosii​

Staphylococcus kloosii in a gram-positive, coagulase-negative member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of single, paired, and clustered cocci. Strains of this species were originally isolated from the skin of various wild animals.
