Abstract

Summary

Strains of and were tested for bacteriocine production both by the normal method and by a modification of it in which the producer strains were inoculated on to cellulose acetate membranes that had been placed on the surface of the culture medium. In only 43·7 per cent. of 379 strains of were the results identical by the two methods. A higher correlation was noted in the case of and only 6 out of 89 strains of this species gave different results by the two methods. We cannot recommend the use of cellulose acetate membranes in these bacteriocine typing techniques.
