- Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) frequently colonises the nasopharynx.
- Broad variation in isolation rates have been reported for NTHi from the nasopharynx.
- Selective media had a higher NTHi recovery rate than non-selective media.
- Combination of selective and non-selective media gave the highest NTHi recovery.
The efficacy of chocolate agar, versus bacitracin, vancomycin, clindamycin, chocolate agar (BVCCA) for the isolation of non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) from nasopharyngeal swabs was determined. BVCCA cultured NTHi from 97.3% of NTHi-positive swabs, compared to 87.1% for chocolate agar. To maximise culture sensitivity, the use of both media is recommended.
