Staphylococcus epidermidis (S. epidermidis), strain NIHLM008 was isolated in 2008 from an alar crease of a healthy 39-year-old African-American female volunteer in the United States.

S. epidermidis, strain NIHLM008 is reported to be sensitive to methicillin. S. epidermidis, strain NIHLM008 (HMP ID 9977) is a reference genome for The Human Microbiome Project (HMP). HMP is an initiative to identify and characterize human microbial flora. The complete genome of S. epidermidis, strain NIHLM008 was sequenced at the NIH Intramural Sequencing Center (GenBank: AKHA00000000).

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