The current state of the problem of the application of bacteriophages for the intraspecies identification of bacteria is presented. The methods of phage typing of the typhoid, paratyphoid B, Salmonella Breslau, staphylococci, dysentery and enteropathogenic coliform bacteria are described in detail. The theoretical aspects of the method of phage identification specificity of phage type, adaptation mechanisms of phages etc. are discussed. The report is destined for scientific workers in the field of microbiology, epidemiology and for practical physicians.
