  1. ABIS online is a laboratory tool for bacterial identification. It is open for public use,
    but using it, still requires an user name. This will be used for printing out the results.
    We are not recording personal data.  Additionally, you may subscribe to newsletter,
    but only if you want to receive notifications about updates via e-mail.
  2. Identification results are purely informative and are not intended to be an official
    point of view. Because of the frequent taxonomy changes some bacterial names
    may not comply with the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names. We try to keep up with
    the changes and regularly update the databases.
  3. Metabolic characters of the microorganisms may vary inside the species, therefore
    not fully matching the identification patterns. Do not entirely rely on biochemical
    identification. Check ABIS Encyclopedia for phenotypical and cultural characters,
    ecology and pathogenicity data before making a final decision.
