Abstract

Six hundred ninety nonduplicate isolates of Acinetobacter species were identified using a combination of detection of blaOXA-51-like and rpoB sequence cluster analysis. Although most isolates were identified as A. baumannii (78%), significant numbers of other species, particularly A. lwoffii/genomic species 9 (8.8%), A. ursingii (4%), genomic species 3 (1.7%), and A. johnsonii (1.7%), were received, often associated with bacteremias.
