Abstract

The survival in transport media of 30 strains of gonococci was determined. These strains comprised five distinguishable strains of each of six auxotypes. Survival of different auxotypes varied significantly, but this variability was reduced by charcoal. Delayed swab processing could yield isolates unrepresentative of those causing infection in a sampled patient population.
