Abstract

It is sometimes desirable to demonstrate bacterial capsules during the routine examination of clinical isolates. Apart from the Indian ink method, methods of demonstrating bacterial capsules are not only tedious but are often non-reproducible. A combined positive-negative capsule staining procedure which is simple, rapid and reproducible is described.
