Growth of S. gallolyticus subsp. gallolyticus strains in a whole blood model. Bacterial growth (with mean and standard deviation) of the S. gallolyticus subsp. gallolyticus strains DSM16831, DSM13808, BAA-2069, LMG17956 and UCN34 was determined in a whole blood model with blood from three different volunteers (n = 2 per volunteer), as described in Materials and Methods. The bacterial titers (CFU/ml) in each volunteer blood (a-c) and the merged (averaged) values of all (d) are displayed as indicated. Bacterial titer was determined by plating assay
