ABIS online

ABIS online - Advanced Bacterial Identification Software is a laboratory tool for bacterial identification,
based on morpho-biochemical characters, cultural characteristics, growth conditions, ecology &
pathogenicity data. The program allows a great flexibility in choosing biochemical tests and is an
alternative to commercial systems or code-books. The software is linked with a germs Encyclopedia
and an antibiogram interpreter.

'Step by step' identification scheme for Salmonella
gallinarum - pullorum.  Contains isolation and
identification requirements based on  SR EN ISO
6579 and frequently used media.  
Also, may be extended to other
Salmonella serovars.

Antibiogram optimization with ATI  v. 1.0

Measured diameter of the inhibition zones are compared
with the  standard values and sorted in descending order of
antibacterial activity (also bacterial strain is marked as
'susceptible', 'intermediate' or 'resistant' accordingly to the
used antibiotics).

Software database contains recommended antibiotics for
Enterobacteriaceae, Pasteurellaceae, Staphylococcus,  
Streptococcus & Pseudomonadaceae .  Recommended

Development log
The ABIS project started in 2003 as a MS-DOS-based program for clinically significant Enterobacteriaceae
identification, using biochemical characters, morphology, growth conditions, ecology  & pathogenicity data.
In one year program reached version 4, upgrading with 3 more genera: Bacillus, Streptococcus &
Staphylococcus.
ABIS 5 was released in 2005 with major changes  including an  easy to use Windows based interface,  
step by step identification for Gram positive & negative bacteria, rods / cocci (Genera only), identification
maps and 2 more families included: Pasteurellaceae  (Pasteurella, Actinobacillus,  Haemophilus) &
Pseudomonadaceae.
Also, Bacillus, Enterobacteriaceae & Staphylococcus databases were updated and the biochemical tests
list, used for identification, was extended.
Continuous changes in bacterial taxonomy forced us to  stop the development of the stand-alone version
and focus on the online development. In the year 2007 "ABIS 6 online", linked with a germs Encyclopedia
and hosted by 'Regnum Prokaryotae" site, was officially released for public use. Later, ABIS 7 brought
Vibironaceae identification,  ABIS 8 - family Campylobacteraceae and ABIS 9 - genus Clostridium and
Salmonella Kauffman-White scheme. Other upgrades followed up to actual  ABIS: Helicobacter and
Lactobacillus (ABIS 10), Listeria and Erysipelothrix (ABIS 11), Corynebacterium and Lancefield grouping
for streptococci (ABIS 12). Databases are periodically revised and updated following the latest changes in
bacterial domain.
