The below chart sets forth summaries of the bacterial species with a change in mean abundance (p-value 0.1) on each of the non-covered surfaces sampled.Total # of species withSpecies significantly Total specieschange in meanSpecies eliminatedreduced but not eliminated eliminated or reduced abundance Keyboard, patient room182162(89%)14(8%)176(97%) Mouse, patient room270236(87%)27(10%)263(97%) IV pump, patient room196176(90%)14(7%)190(97%) Supply scanner, patient room253214(85%)28(11%)242(96%) Nurse ID badge114101(89%)8(7%)109(96%) Keyboard, nurse station172130(76%)34(20%)164(95%) Phone, nurse station14484(58%)35(24%)119(83%) Mouse, nurse station4918(37%)4(8%)22(45%) Cellphone330(0%)13(39%)13(39%) Glucometer, nurse station3913(33%)2(5%)15(38%) Stethoscope490(0%)15(31%)15(31%) Chair rails, nurse station9117(19%)1(1%)18(20%)IMPACT ON CLINICALLY RELEVANT BACTERIAL SPECIES HOW THE ANALYSIS WAS DONEResearchers from Contamination Source Identification, LLC Many clinically relevant bacterial species were among those eliminated or significantly reduced during the post- (Huntingdon, PA), designed the study, analyzed the samples, and intervention period.The below chart shows percentperformed the statistical calculations. Metagenomic analysis of the samples was done using 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing reduction in abundance across all samples of several keytechniques coupled with a proprietary bioinformatic data bacterial species.
