|Contribution||Isolated staphylococci in pure culture from wounds.|
|Notes||Orange colonies were named Staphylococcus pyogenes aureus (major pathogen) and white colonies were named S. pyrogenes albus (later shown to be mixture). See Steffee, Perspect. Cf Koch 1880. Also Strep. see Bullock. Foster says his albus was not the modern albus but probably another strain of the modern pyogenes. The work, done with the benefit of the new solid media, confirmed Ogsten's belief that streptococci and staphylococci were different germs, and clarified their role in various septic conditions.|
