High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) were used to analyze the phospholipids and fatty acids of four Arcobacter species (becoming routinely isolated from a wide variety of food sources, especially of animal origin) to provide information for the identification within these species. Phospholipid differences were observed in the HPLC profiles. GC-MS analysis provided a complete fatty acid composition for each arcobacter that after pattern recognition analysis allows taxonomic classification of each species.
