    Hi,

    While looking at Salmonella sp, I came across these 2 tests:

    Code         LongName                                                           Property
    20951-0      Salmonella sp serotype [Identifier] in Isolate by Agglutination       Prid
    65756-9      Salmonella sp serovar [Type] in Isolate                               Type

    Why are the properties different (Prid and Type, respectively)? What is the meaning of the Type property?

    Thanks
