Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), strain RN1 (also referred to as NCTC 8325, PS47 and NRS77) was isolated in 1960 in the United Kingdom.

S. aureus, strain RN1 was originally used for typing phage 47 and is considered to be the original strain for most S. aureus genetic research. S. aureus, strain RN1 was deposited as negative for mec, rsbU, and sak; MLST sequence type (ST) 8; eGenomic spa type 59, eGenomic spa repeats YHGGFMBQBLO; Ridom spa type t211; agr group I. It also has a large variety of virulence factors. Due to the integration of F13 in hlb, this strain does not produce beta-hemolysin, but does produce alpha, delta and gamma-hemolysins. The complete genome sequence of S. aureus, strain RN1 is available (GenBank: CP000253.1) and is the reference genome for S. aureus.

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