Abstract
Two different bacteriosphage typing schemes are reviewed, both of which are in routine use in many countries. The present availability of strain-specific and species-specific phages for the typing of bacteria, is discussed. The paper is concerned with a number of advances in the typing procedure including methods of propagation and storage of phage, methods to make phage typing more rapid, typing of impure cultures, typing of colonies in contrast to cultures, detection and identification by the phage titre increase method and phage typing under field conditions.
