Reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography of corynomycolic acids provided a specific pattern for each Corynebacterium species studied. These data suggest that a fast and reproducible procedure is now available for bacteriological identification at the genus and at the species level of corynomycolic-acid-containing bacteria. Mass spectrometry analysis of post-column collected fractions provided the order of elution of some corynomycolic acids and isomers and showed the high specificity of the chromatographic assay which could be used for the routine bacteriological identification of some species belonging to the genus Corynebacterium. © 1992.
