Bartonella PCR amplification results from blood, serum, and enrichment blood culture with the Bartonella α Proteobacteria growth medium. Of 296 patients, 120 had positive PCR results in 1 component. Two patients, who had positive PCR results only after enrichment culture incubation and subculture onto agar, are not included. Each circle represents Bartonella PCR amplification results from blood, serum, or after enrichment blood culture. Each number represents the total (%) positive for each of t

Figure 2. . . Bartonella PCR amplification results from blood, serum, and enrichment blood culture with the Bartonella α Proteobacteria growth medium. Of 296 patients, 120 had positive PCR results in 1 component. Two patients, who had positive PCR results only after enrichment culture incubation and subculture onto agar, are not included. Each circle represents Bartonella PCR amplification results from blood, serum, or after enrichment blood culture. Each number represents the total (%) positive for each of the 4 possibilities within each of the 3 circles. For example, only 3 (1%) patients had positive results from blood, serum, and enrichment blood culture.
