Thirteen isolates of Salmonella serotype Glostrup (antigenic formula, 6,8:z10:e,n,z15) from various sources and countries were analysed by ribotyping and IS200 fingerprinting. Both methods provided a high index of strain discrimination by allowing detection of three ribotypes and eight IS200 fingerprints which, though generally related, were readily distinguishable. The findings of this analysis confirm the usefulness of ribotyping and IS200 fingerprinting for studying the epidemiology of rarely isolated salmonellae of serogroup C.
