Abstract

SUMMARY: Quantitative studies with a demanding anaerobe ( type D) have shown that colony counts of the organism obtained from plates incubated in a given Baird & Tatlock (B.T.L.) anaerobic jar may differ markedly from the counts obtained with identical inocula on plates processed in an alternative jar of the same type. An investigation of jar variation led to improved experimental designs, so that statistically valid results could be obtained from quantitative studies. Such experiments showed the importance of multiple catalyst sachets for the recovery of organisms of the group.
