Staphylococcus epidermidis (S. epidermidis), strain HIP4680 (also referred to as 5289 and NRS8) was isolated in 1996 in Virginia, USA from the blood of a 49-year-old female cancer patient with a bloodstream infection who had received an extended course of vancomycin therapy.

S. epidermidis, strain HIP4680 is a vancomycin-intermediate S. epidermidis (VISE) strain that was deposited as positive for mec; negative for vanA, vanB, vanC, vanD and vanE; resistant to penicillin, oxacillin, clindamycin, erythromycin, ciprofloxacin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, intermediate to gentamicin and sensitive to chloramphenicol, rifampin and tetracycline. This is the first reported case of a bloodstream infection linked to a VISE strain in the United States.

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