Description:This image depicts the results of what was a polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis study performed due to an “epidemiological need for [the development of] a standardized method for typing [Corynebacterium diphtheria] organisms in order to determine [their] epidemiological associations during outbreaks and the dynamics of circulation of [these] bacterial types.”
At the time of this study, it was thought that “polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of C. diphtheriae strains might prove to be a useful epidemiologic tool in establishing the distribution and occurrence of various gravis, mitis, and intermedius C. diphtheria types." (See the link below)
