Abstract Conventional methods usually fail to identify Klebsiella planticola and Klebsiella terrigena, which represent up to 19\% of clinical Klebsiella isolates. By combining four carbon substrate assimilation tests and two conventional tests, the method identified these species with a specificity and a sensitivity of 100\%. Overall, sensitivity for Klebsiella identification was 94.7\%.
