Abstract

SUMMARY

Empirical methods of assigning type designations to the patterns that describe the reactions of a bacterial isolate towards a reference set of indicator (or producer) strains have resulted in loss of information and have made it difficult to compare published reports.

We propose that the whole pattern sequence be considered a binary number and be translated into its decimal counterpart, which may be used as a rational, compact and meaningful type designation for reporting purposes.
