Dr F. Bolton described those phenotypic and genotypic typing schemes currently available. It was apparent from the discussion that no scheme was widely used in any part of the world. In England and Wales as few as 10–15% of campylobacters (about 5000 isolates) were typed even as far as C.jejuni or C.coli. A negligible proportion of these were further subtyped.
