  • a A positive reaction (+) means that agglutination was visible within 3 min of mixing the test sample with the staphylococci.

  • b A background microagglutination was usually developed with both the negative control and the antipneumolysin-sensitized staphylococci.

  • c The lysate assayed was partially hemolytic.

  • d Three lysates were agglutination negative and nonhemolytic.
