Excerpt from Alumni Report, Vol. 36: February, 1900
To protect druggists in handling and physicians in employing antitoxin, the method of dating antitoxin was devised, at the expiration of which it is to be returned in exchange for a fresh supply; this ex change entails no expense ou the druggist or physician except the cost of mailing.
Antitoxin is usually supplied in tubes con taining varying quantities of serum, but of a certain number of immunizing units. This is apt to lead to confusion, and therefore an antitoxin is supplied of a fixed stand ard of a definite number of immunizing units in each cubic centimetre of serum. While this involves extra labor, it prevents confusion on the part of the physician, and the end is well worthy of the increased labor.
