Filter paper discs impregnated with solutions containing 0,25, 0,5 and 1 mg/ml of thionin acetate, 0,75 and 1,5 mg/ml of basic fuchsin and 0,5 mg/ml of thionin blue were used in the typing of Brucella species. All the strains used reacted as expected, proving this new technique to be reliable in the identification of Brucella species. The method is less expensive and the results easier to interpret than those obtained with methods previously used.
