Abstract

Summary

In preliminary studies in a hospital in Manchester in which tissue culture was used for cultivation, was isolated from the air on two occasions and from surface samples on one. Water agar plates with a lawn of were exposed in a slit sampler, or as settle plates, in and outside a laboratory in London and the following amoebae were isolated: 12 strains of , 7 of 5 of , 1 of , 3 of sp. and 1 of sp. In outdoor air an average of one amoebic cyst of any species was found in 322 cu. ft (9-1 m) and one cyst of in 644 cu. ft (18·2 m). All the isolates of damaged HeLa cells. Four that grew poorly or not at all at 37°C showed a marked cytopathic effect at 33°C. An identification key is given.
