Table 2 Clinically isolated staphylococcal strains used in this study with their gentamicin susceptibility and inoculum size (10log CFU)

From: Gentamicin release from commercially-available gentamicin-loaded PMMA bone cements in a prosthesis-related interfacial gap model and their antibacterial efficacy

  1. Also the mean number of colony forming units (10log CFU) harvested from gaps prepared in the four commercially available gentamicin-loaded bone cements are shown. Note that only the gaps were filled with fluid and not the volume above the samples. Results are means from three separate experiments (n = 3) ± SD, unless no growth.
  2. - = no growth
