Three methods have been employed for producing large volumes of Staphylococcus enterotoxin in hydrolyzed casein mediums. These are: 1. Shallow cultures.—Fifty Roux bottles, each containing 200 ml of culture, are incubated at 37 C in a sealed incubator containing 20% carbon dioxide and 80% air. 2. Deep cultures in turning bottles.-— A sealed 12-gallon bottle containing 10 L of culture under 20% carbon dioxide plus 80% air is turned continuously in a horizontal position on rollers during incubation at 37 C. 3. Deep aerated cultures.—One to 15 L of deep culture is aerated with either air or a 20% carbon dioxide plus 80% oxygen gas mixture during incubation at 37 C.
