A microbiologic method based on Lactobacillus casei for assaying folic acid activity in serum is presented. The assay correlates directly with the clinical diagnosis. Comparison with formimino-L-glutamic acid determinations and other microbiologic assay methods shows the assay here described to yield a more dependable estimate of the folic acid status in humans.
