Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), strain 95938 (also referred to as USA500 and NRS385) was isolated from a bloodstream sample in Connecticut, USA.

S. aureus, strain 95938 is a hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus (HA-MRSA) strain. S. aureus, strain 95938 was deposited as resistant to erythromycin, clindamycin, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, levofloxacin, gentamicin and tetracycline; positive for mec (subtype IV), sea and seb; MLST sequence type (ST) 8; pulsed-field type USA500; eGenomic spa type 7, eGenomic spa repeats YHGCMBQBLO; Ridom spa type t064; agr grp I. S. aureus, strain 95938 is a USA500 isolate. USA500 isolates have a common MLST sequence type (ST 8), spa motif (MBQBLO) and agr group (I) and are PVL-negative. USA500 isolates are multi-drug resistant healthcare-associated MRSA strains, but have been also been associated with sporadic community-acquired infections. USA500 is believed to be the predecessor of the most common community-associated pulsed-field type, USA300.

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