Clostridium septicum RapID ANA
- The definitive identification of C. septicum can be made using a profile of biochemical reactions, as is contained in the RapID ANA strip seen in the image. The upper set of tubules are reactions before addition of reagents; the bottom set of reactions after reagents are added.
- The upper set of letter codes is used to read the reactions before addition of reagents; the lower set of labels indicate the tests to read following addition of reagents.
- Of all the reactions included, only ONPG and NAG in the upper set are positive.
- The biotype number derived from this profile of reactions, 014000 codes for Clostridium septicum, thus confirming the identification.
