    how many gram negative bacilli are there?

    Is e-coli one of the gram negative bacilli and if a swab was taken would it be able to be isolated or would a broad view just state the presence of a gram negative bacilli?

    There are many different kinds of Gram-negative bacteria, including E. coli.

    Some (not all) can cause diseases in people. Is there a reason that you had a swab taken?
