Lettering

Preparation of Semple's vaccine (one per cent carbolised). The weighed brain is ground up in enough carbolised saline to make a 2 per cent emulsion. This is then strained through fine gauze as shown. The bottle is then plugged and placed in the dark at 37 degrees C. for 24 hours. At the end of 24 hours it is tested (animal test) and then sufficient saline added to make a one per cent emulsion. Cultures are then taken to ensure absence of contamination
