Utilizing a simple technic, a good yield of pyrogenic material has been obtained from a strain of Aerobacter aerogenes. This dried product consistently elicits pyrogenic response in rabbits in dilutions of approximately 1:100,000,000 (0.01 μg./ml.) and is relatively stable to dry heat when exposed to 120° for forty minutes.
