Abstract:

With the poliomyelitis virus as an example, the virus concentration and neutralization by antisera were determined by two methods 1 In the traditional test tube cultures and 2 In plastic cups with subcultures. The results were statistically compared with each other. It was found that the titre averages for the two methods differ only by chance, but that the cup method has a greater variance. It may still be said that the cup method is just as usable for virus and serum diagnosis of poliomyelitis as the test tube method.
