Commercially produced prepackaged “kit” microsystems were evaluated for the identification of anaerobes. The API 20A and Minitek Anaerobe II systems by themselves were inadequate; even with the use of supplemental tests, agreement of identifications with a conventional method was only fair. Anldent is a new and radically different system that provides accurate identifications after only 4 hours’ incubation in room air without the need for a significant number of supplemental tests.
