Abstract

SUMMARY: 169 strains of and 68 strains of were used in an examination of Hajna & Damon’s hippurate test and various modifications of it. The addition of a pH indicator (phenol red) to the medium enabled hydrolysis to be detected by a change of colour. Clear-cut distinction between and was not obtained with any method, but the indicator medium gave the best results and was simplest.
