Cluster analysis of Brucella reference strains based on biochemical reactions. Cluster analysis of the 23 Brucella reference strains based on 570 (A) and 93 (B) biochemical reactions tested with the Taxa Profile™ system (plate A, C, and E) and the newly developed Brucella specific Micronaut™ microtiter plate, respectively. Hierarchical cluster analysis was performed by the Ward's linkage algorithm using the binary coded data based on the empirically set cut-off.
