A modified technique in listerial phage typing, termed reversed phage typing procedure, was developed. Ready-to-use typing plates were prepared by preapplication of phage suspensions on tryptose agar plates. The new procedure offers a number of substantial advantages as compared with the conventional method, being much more reliable, efficient, and… CONTINUE READING
