|Contribution||Developed method for culture of anthrax bacilli, and observed complete spore formation.|
|Notes||In the process of inoculating a rabbit intraocularly with tissue from an anthrax-infected rabbit, Koch observed the suitability of aqueous humor for culture of anthrax bacilli. He also found that cultures on slides did especially well if maintained at 30-35 C, and if kept from drying yet not deprived of air.|
