Growth of S. aureus in supplemented human whole blood. a S. aureus strains obtained from ATCC and b wild-type strains isolated from patient material reached exponential growth (log phase) after 2–4 h of incubation in whole blood supplemented with glucose and adenine as described in Materials and Methods. CFU counts are indicated relative to the initial spiking concentration of 103–104 CFU/mL (n = 6)
