0.0028; see Table 7-3). This is still a very unlikely probability for correct identification, but only four parameters were tested, and the indole result was atypical. As more parameters are added to the formula, the importance of just one test decreases and the overall pattern prevails.

With many organisms being tested for 20 or more reactions, computer-generated databases provide the probabilities. As more organisms are included in the database, the genus and species designations and probabilities become more precise. Also, with more profiles in a database, the unusual patterns can be more readily recognized and, in some cases, new or unusual species may be discovered.

The most common commercial suppliers of multi-component identification systems are driven by patent information technology and data management systems that automatically provide analysis and outcome of the metabolic process and identification.
