Abstract

SUMMARY: In twenty-nine of a series of thirty strains of and there was correspondence between penicillinase production, ‘cell sensitivity’ to penicillin and penicillin lysis, but no relation between these characteristics and the results of eleven routine tests for pigmentation. -haemolysis, coagulase formation and various biochemical reactions.
