Laura:

Can you give us some additional info?

Does it remain very long after numerous subcultures?
What is the colony morphology?  Any pigment?  What temperature and media are
best for growth?
Is it oxidase positive or negative?
Does it grow on MacConkey?  If yes, is it lactose positive or negative?
Did you run it on both Vitek GNI+ and NFC cards?
Was it run on the Biolog as an enteric or non-enteric?
Did you try reading it under GN All on the Biolog?
Have you tried testing it by BD Crystal, Remel RapID, or Vitek API Systems?
Are the rods very large? Could it be a Bacillus that is staining gram
negative?
   You may want to check for spores on an old cultures.

Good Luck,

Subject: [PMFLIST] Waterborne Rod


Hi all:

I wanted to know if anyone has seen a very, very long rod as part of their
water systems.  It is a Gram negative organism but it is unusually long.  In
addition, it typically comes unidentified via Vitek or Biolog.  Any hints?

Regards,
