First appearance of this importent paper in which Arloing describes his "Sero-agglutination for the diagnosis of presence of tubercle bacillus." (Garrison & Morton No. 2334).
It is well known that the ordinary cultures of the bacillus of Koch can not be used for agglutination. Arloing, however, in 1898, obtained a fluid homogeneous culture of the tubercle bacillus and demonstrated its specific agglutinability by the serum of tuberculous human beings or animals, thus rendering possible the serum diagnosis of tuberculosis.
