Von Schrotter and Winkler report that they have recently employed plover's egg albumen in the cultivation of the gonococcus of Neisser. The coccus is obtained from the urethra with all possible precautions.

There is some growth at ordinary temperatures, but it is much less. Experiments with egg albumen of the common fowl were negative. Centralblatt für Bakteriologie und Parasitenkunde, May 23, 1891.
