Abstract

The potential of the Biolog system for the identification of Bacillus anthracis was evaluated. In-house generated databases allowed the correct identification of 19 of 20 isolates of B. anthracis within 24 h. Five strains of the closely related B. cereus/thuringiensis group were misidentified as B. anthracis. For this reason the test could only serve as a primary screen with further testing being required to confirm identity. In addition 20% of all the strains of bacilli examined during the study gave unreadable reaction profiles due to false-positive reactions.
