Serogroup identification of meningococci by a modified antiserum agar method



Serogroup identification of meningococci by a modified antiserum agar method



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 9(4): 547-548



Modifications in the antiserum agar method for serogroup identification of meningococci, which reduce the amount of group-specific antisera required and increase long-term storage of prepoured antiserum agar plates, are described.
