    Two `multitest'1 media for biochemical classification of the genus Proteus into species were developed. The species so determined were checked with conventional methods. Results show that these media were useful for rapid identification of species. The biochemical reactions of four Proteus species isolated from clinical specimens as tested by conventional methods are reviewed and the occurrence of some atypical strains is described.
