Abstract

SUMMARY

A total of 464 strains, most of them fresh clinical isolates, have been classified by chemotyping—a combination of auxotyping and biotyping. Seven auxotests and four other biochemical tests allowed recognition of 56 types. These were to a degree site-specific. of capsular type b proved almost without exception to belong to one chemotype, and 24 of 33 strains assigned to this chemotype were capsulated. When surgical-ward isolates of were typed, the results suggested that some cross-infection had occurred.
