Because of the improved culture methods (8,9) and sensitive nucleic acid amplification assays (NAAAs) (10-14) developed in recent years, Kingella kingae, a gram-negative coccobacillus of the Neisseriaceae family, is increasingly recognized as an invasive pathogen of early childhood.
The family Neisseriaceae contains several genera isolated from water samples, including Aquaspirillium (freshwater under aerobic to microaerophilic conditions), lodobacter (running water, lakes, and sediments), Prolinoborus (pond water), and Vogella (freshwater) (Tonjum 2005).

Indeed, by grazing on bacteria, the free-living amoebae will clean the samples from most rapid growing species that generally overwhelm the agar plates (for example Enterobacteriaceae, Staphylococci, Streptococci, and Neisseriaceae in a nasal sample).
