Title

Reduced Set of Phages for Typing Escherichia coli

Abstract

A phage typing set composed of 32 phages is described for differentiating Escherichi coli. Eight hundred sixty-six isolates from cases of bovine mastitis were used in this effort. Of these cultures 829, or 96%, were characterized successfully, and 178 phage types were observed. Thirty-seven isolates were not typable.
