Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), strain HIP09737 (also referred to as NRS52) was isolated in 2000 in California, USA, from bile of a female patient who had a history of acute cholecystitis, complicated cholecystectomy and long-term vancomycin treatment for a methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) infection.

S. aureus, strain HIP09737 is a vancomycin-intermediate S. aureus (VISA) strain. S. aureus, strain HIP09737 was deposited as negative for mecA, vanA, vanB, vanC1, vanC2, vanD and vanE; MLST sequencing type (ST) 5; eGenomic spa type 24, eGenomic spa repeats TJMEMDMGMK; Ridom spa type t242. Strain HIP09737 is reported to be sensitive to quinupristin/dalfopristin, oxacillin, gentamicin, tetracycline and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole; intermediate resistant to vancomycin and chloramphenicol; and resistant to erythromycin, clindamycin, levofloxacin, ciprofloxacin and rifampin. Two VISA strains were isolated from this patient, strain HIP09740 (NRS51) and strain HIP09737, which have identical antibiotic susceptibility profiles except for oxacillin and have closely related pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) types.

Each vial contains approximately 0.5 mL of bacterial culture in Tryptic Soy broth supplemented with 10% glycerol.
