The most commonly detected antigen components are H. injiuenzae, N. meningitidis, group B streptococci, and Escherichia coli Kl. The combination of cerebrospinal fluid, serum, and urine counterimmunoelectrophoresis can identify virtually 100% of children with H. , 1976). The poor results with meningococcal meningitis are in contrast to those of some earlier investigations and are probably due to the serogroups involved. It is also recognized that group B meningococcal polysaccharide cannot be detected by a routine agarose counterimmunoelectrophoresis system (Tilton, 1978).

Counting methods depend on the specific medium used and its pH and incubation requirements. Therefore, the accuracy of quantitative determinations may be low, depending on the materials and technical methods used. A single determination generally is not reliable; averaging several determinations provides greater accuracy, especially if the counting method is not standardized. Classification of the Counting Methods The methods used in bacterial counting are numerous, and may be categorized as physical or biological.
