The identification of Listeria species is based on a limited number of biochemical markers, among which absence or presence of hemolysis and arylamidase are used to differentiate between L. monocytogenes and L. innocua. The CAMP (Christie, Atkins, Munch-Petersen) test must be interpreted with caution.
