Caused by the environmental gram-negative bacillus Burkholderia pseudomallei
, melioidosis can manifest as bacteremia, abscesses, or pneumonia.
This specimen was sent to a commercial laboratory in New Jersey, which identified Burkholderia pseudomallei
, the causative organism of melioidosis, on August 30.
showed successful growth from soil containing clay with six months interval for up to 30 months (Thomas and Forbes-Faulkner 1981).
According to the company, the DPP Fever Panel Assay will include a quality control and nine tests aimed at parasitic, viral and bacterial pathogens commonly responsible for fever symptoms in the Asia Pacific region, including malaria (four Plasmodium species, using pLDH and HRP2), dengue virus, Zika virus, chikungunya virus, leptospirosis, Rickettsia typhi, Burkholderia pseudomallei
, and Orientia tsutsugamushi.

, thus allowing for multiplex detection of species as well as isolate defining single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
Final identification was made using the API 20 enteric (API 20E) and API 20 nonenteric (API 20NE) (bioMerieux/ Marcy 1'Etoile, France) biochemical tests, which identified the growth as Burkholderia pseudomallei
Melioidosis is an endemic communicable disease caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei
