Plastic embedding of transbronchial biopsy specimens for light microscopy.

Abstract

The combined use of anaerobic culture with added carbon dioxide and the rapid confirmation by plate bile solubility test enabled clearcut results to be obtained even in the mixed flora from respiratory specimens. The method thus saves the time required to obtain pure cultures. The test is simple to perform, gives rapid results, compares well with the standard identification methods, and is therefore recommended as a routine screening procedure for the diagnostic laboratory.
