  1. *Most likely ID was determined using CIBSI algorithm and based on similarity analysis of the sequences obtained from the microarray with sequences deposited GenBank at the time of conducting the analysis (April 2010). Abbreviations used: K. pneumoniae = Klebsiella pneumoniae, P. stutzeri = Pseudomonas stutzeri, Staph. = Staphylococcus spp., P. aeruginosa = Pseudomonas aeruginosa, P. putida = Pseudomonas putida, M. catarrhalis = Moraxella catarhalis, E. sakazakii = Enterobacter sakazakii. Organism names enclosed in parentheses denote result of hybridization of a single microarray tile, which cannot be unambiguously identified based on the obtained sequence.
