Aerobic Gram-Positive Cocci

Pertinent characteristics: aerotolerant anaerobes that can occur singly or in pairs, tetrads, chains,
or clusters; can be catalase
positive or negative. Organisms positive for coagulase or clumping factor include Staphylococcus
aureus, Staphylococcus
intermedius, Staphylococcus lugdunensis, and Staphylococcus schleiferi subspecies coagulans.
