Handbook of the Technique of the Teat and Capillary Glass Tube, and its Applications in Medicine and Bacteriology

Abstract

In this book Sir Almroth Wright gives a full account of the ingenious apparatus and methods which he and his co-workers have evolved for making quantitative estimations, principally in connection with the blood and other body fluids. It is generally not possible in this kind of work to deal with quantities greater than a small fraction of a cubic centimetre, and therefore ordinary graduated pipettes and measures are not applicable. It is true that graduated pipettes to deal with such small quantities are obtainable, but they are costly, and it would be out of the question to employ them in the numbers and in the manner required, for instance, for opsonic determinations. As the author says, “it is. a technique for conducting quantitative tests in uncalibrated capillary tubes with minimal quantities of reagents.”
