can be used, with GBS hydrolyzing sodium hippurate.
Each isolate was tested by Gram staining, cytochrome oxidase, and hippurate hydrolysis
for presumptive identification and species-specific PCR (3) to identify 5 species from Campylobacter genus.
Hippurate hydrolysis test was done by standard method15 to identify L.
pneumophila as identified by positive hippurate hydrolysis test.
Campylobacter isolates that were hippurate hydrolysis
positive were identified as C.
7%) used the hippurate hydrolysis
test to identify C.
Campylobacter strains were presumptively identified with Gram stain, oxidase, and hippurate hydrolysis
tests and confirmed with a C.
Isolates were determined to be Campylobacter by dark-field microscopic examination and hippurate hydrolysis
The isolates were sent to Helsinki University Central Hospital (HUCH) Laboratory Diagnostics along with information about the patient (date of birth, sex, recent travel history) and the isolate (date of stool sampling, hippurate hydrolysis
