A blood agar plate incubated for 24h at 35°C in which the multiple colonial morphologies of the Michigan VISA strain can be observed. The large cream colored colonies and smaller gray colonies demonstrated the same antibiogram (vancomycin MIC= 8 ug/ml) and pulsed field gel electrophoresis profiles.
