  1. -ve in Latex Agglutination test signifies no noticeable clearance of the blue background in the latex test; -ve in Slide Coagulase test signifies no visible clumping or clotting using either saline or plasma; -ve in Tube Coagulase test signifies no clot by the end of 4 hours or following 24 hours incubation a room temperature.
  2. 1The highest percentage of identification.
  3. 2The highest similarity after aligning by BLAST.
