Guinée, P.A.M. Mossel, D.A.A. Publication year 1967 Abstract A comparative examination of Patho-Tec reagent-impregnated paper strips and the corresponding classical biochemical tests for the identification of Enterobacteriaceae was made. Patho-Tec papers appeared to be reliable for the cytochrome-oxidase and phenylalanine-deaminase tests. The urease test papers gave false negative reactions in Citrobacter and Enterobacter isolates, but never in Proteus strains. The lysine-decarboxylase test papers gave too many false positive results. These shortcomings of the strips interfere with fast and reliable identification of Salmonella-like Enterobacteriaceae.
