An automated cellular fatty acid (CFA) bacterial identification system, Microbial Identification System (MIS; Microbial ID, Newark, Del.), was compared with a conventional system for the identification of 573 strains of gram-negative nonfermentative bacteria. MIS identifications were based exclusively on the CFA composition following 22 to 26 h of growth at 28 degrees C on Trypticase soy agar. MIS identifications were listed with a confidence measurement (similarity index [SI]) on a scale of 0… CONTINUE READING
