M.R.S.A.

Also known as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus refers to a group of gram-positive bacteria that are genetically distinct from other strains of Staphylococcus aureus.  This is also referred to as the Supe-Bug as common antibiotics do not treat it.

Streptococcus pyogenes

Streptococcus pyogenes is a species of Gram-positive bacterium in the genus Streptococcus. These bacteria are aerotolerant and an extracellular bacterium, made up of non-motile and non-sporing cocci. Streptococcus causes around 700 million infections worldwide annually ranging from minor to life threatening.

Staphylococcus aureus

Staphylococcus aureus is the most dangerous of all of the many common staphylococcal bacteria. These gram-positive, sphere-shaped (coccal) bacteria often cause skin infections but can cause pneumonia, heart valve infections, and bone infections. … Thoroughly washing the hands can help prevent spread of infection.

Proteus mirabilis

Proteus mirabilis is a Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium. It shows swarming motility and urease activity. P. mirabilis causes 90% of all Proteus infections in humans. It is widely distributed in soil and water.
