Typically biochemical tests will be able to provide you with species level
information. Strain variations are best examined using genetics-based
(fingerprinting) methods.

Milind:

I am very interested in your comments.  Is there any test we can use to
differentiate the environmental strains from the pathogenic strains?  Will
the biochemical reactions of the GNI card for the Vitek system able to
provide the information?  Thanks.
