Isolation of Leptospira from blood culture bottles
چکیده انگلیسی

•Leptospira isolation is rare, yet isolates are needed for epidemiology and research.•Blood culture bottles provide a useful source for Leptospira isolation and culture.•BacT/Alert bottles allowed isolation of Leptospira over more than 2 days from collection.

With the increasing use of real-time PCR techniques, Leptospira isolation has mostly been abandoned for the diagnosis of human leptospirosis. However, there is a great value of collecting Leptospira isolates to better understand the epidemiology of this complex zoonosis and to provide the researchers with different isolates. In this study, we have successfully isolated different Leptospira strains from BacT/Alert aerobic blood culture bottles and suggest that this privileged biological material offers an opportunity to isolate leptospires.
