Abstract
20 S. aureas isolates isolated from 80 students, specimens were collected from the anterior narse using small sterile swabs placed in a screw-cap container containing transport (brain heart infusion broth) medium, All 20 S. aureas isolates capable of fermenting manitol were sub cultured on blood agar, only 10 isolates were ß-hemolytic representing 50% Whereas 7 isolates were found to be non hemolytic or -hemolytic representing 35%, and 3 isolates were -hemolytic representing 15%, All S. aureus (coagulase positive) isolates (20) had a -lactamase activity (100%) according to Detection of -lactamase Enzyme by Rapid Iodometric Method.
