Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), strain N315 (also referred to as NRS70) was isolated in 1982 from a pharyngeal smear of a patient in Japan.

S. aureus, strain N315 is a methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strain. S. aureus, strain N315 was deposited as resistant to clindamycin, erythromycin and spectinomycin; positive for mec (subtype II); pulsed-field type USA100; MLST sequence type (ST) 5; eGenomic spa type 2, eGenomic spa repeats TJMBMDMGMK; Ridom spa type t002; agr grp II. It also has a large variety of virulence factors. S. aureus, strain N315 is a USA100 isolate. USA100 isolates have the same MLST profile (ST 5) and SCCmec (subtype II) and are usually resistant to β-lactams, erythromycin and spectinomycin as well as being multiresistant to other commonly used therapeutic agents. USA100 is the most prevalent U.S health care-associated pulse-field type and is endemic in many U.S. hospitals.The complete genome sequence of S. aureus, strain N315 is available (GenBank: BA000018.3). It is the representative genome for S. aureus.

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