Cluster analysis of Brucella field isolates based on biochemical reactions. Cluster analysis of 113 Brucella strains including the reference strains and two isolates of a potentially new species that originated from Austrian foxes based on 93 biochemical reactions tested with the newly developed Brucella specific Micronaut™ microtiter plate. Hierarchical cluster analysis was performed by the Ward's linkage algorithm using the binary coded data based on the empirically set cut-off.
