Abstract:

A quick microtest on a morphological basis, developed independently of Walch, is described, which in three to five hours shows the sensitivity of germs and mixtures of germs to antibiotics and permits a conjectural bacteriological diagnosis. For clinical purposes the accuracy is equal to that of other testing methods. The sensitivity of the germs to antibiotics can be given in figures.
