A phage-typing scheme for Salmonella enteritidis

  • L. R. Ward (a1), J. D. H. de Sa (a1) and B. Rowe (a1)

For many years phage typing has proved invaluable in epidemiological studies on Salmonella typhi, S. paratyphi A and B, S. typhimurium and a few other serotypes. A phage-typing scheme for S. enteritidis is described. This scheme to date differentiates 27 types using 10 typing phages.
