Duodenal isolation of Salmonella typhi by string capsule in acute typhoid fever.J Clin Microbiol. 1976 Apr; 3(4):456-7.JC
Three of seven volunteers with acute typhoid fever had Salmonella typhi isolated from the duodenum using a string capsule device. The string capsule device provides a simple method for culturing S. typhi from the duodenal contents. Its possible use in typhoid carriers is discussed.
