This study compared phenotypic and genotypic identification methods of . against the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in terms of sensitivity, specificity, positive-predictive value and negative-predictive value. Thermophilic Campylobacter isolates were identified using conventional biochemical tests, specifically hippurate hydrolysis, matrix assisted laser desorption ionization- time of flight (MALDI-ToF) mass spectrometry and PCR with primers unique to and MALDI-ToF was shown to be superior to biochemical tests for identification of but equivalent to biochemical tests for .
