Abstract

The present study was designed to determine whether this Coulter Counter for detection of Salmonella typhimurium cells. The latex particles are coated with a specific antiserum which reacts with the particulate antigen, Salmonella cells. An increase in the volume of latex antibody and Salmonella cells is detected by the Coulter Counter data and a teletype to plot the data shortens the time consumption. This method also has a potential to be completely automated.
