Staph test: The Staph test is a laboratory test used to identify Staphylococcus aureus bacteria from a human sample or cultured isolate derived from a human sample. S. aureus bacteria that normally live on the skin and in the nose of many healthy individuals are usually harmless; however, these individuals (and others who become infected with the germ) may become sick if the bacteria enter the body through a cut in the skin or wound. Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is a type of S. aureus that is resistant to commonly used antibiotics used to treat the infection.
