Abstract : A simple, rapid method, based on the Oudin single gel diffusion technique, is described for the quantitative assay of staphylococcal enterotoxin B. The method yields reproducible results without close control of such assay variables as temperature, antiserum dilution, and assay time, provided that the ionic strength is maintained above 0.2 N sodium chloride equivalent.
