Studies for the evaluation of Enterobacter infections include the following:

  • Complete blood count

  • Creatinine level

  • Electrolyte evaluation

  • Fluid analysis, such as cells and differential, proteins, glucose, and, in some cases, pH, lactate dehydrogenase, and amylase; required for pleural, articular, pericardial, peritoneal, and cerebrospinal fluids
