  1. 1Relative haemolysis given by the ratio of haemolysis measured from cell-free culture supernatant obtained following growth in the presence of RBCs relative to haemolysis measured from culture supernatant obtained following growth in the absence of RBCs; *positive effect significant at p < 0.05 by the Kruskal-Wallis Test.
