Abstract

Bèta-hemolytic streptococci from lesions in pigs were identified as S. dysgalactiae biotype "equisimilis" and S. dysgalactiae serovar L, S. porcinus, S. agalactiae, E. faecalis and CO2 dependent and broad bèta-hemolytic S. suis. Data are provided which can be used in the interpretation of commercial identification systems. Tests results and physiological characteristics which complete identification procedures using coagglutination tests are proposed and discussed.
