Abstract

The analysis of volatile compounds (VCs) generated by bacteria has been proposed as a possible alternative method for the identification of pathogenic bacteria. Further investigations into the VCs generated by many different species and strains of the same species are required alongside the use of consistent growth conditions and procedures throughout VC analysis. Consequently, the true potential of the detection of bacterial VCs as a diagnostic tool in the identification of pathogenic bacteria in clinical and food samples can be determined.
