Excerpt from The Cleveland Medical Journal, Vol. 12: January, 1913
It is, then, important that a polyvalent antigen containing several strains of gonococci be used in the clinical application of this test, and that a few failures were reported by the earlier workers may readily have been due to the fact that they worked with antigen made from a single strain of gonococci.
The technique which I have used in making these tests is that used by Doctor Louis Schmidt9 and his assistant, Doctor Mathies, of Chicago, and is so nearly identical with that of the W'assermann test, with the exception of the antigen, that I shall only brieﬂy describe the procedure.
