    Abstract

    Wheat-germ agglutination (WGA) was used to identify 168 strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and 105 strains of other Neisseria species in a routine laboratory. About one-third of the meningococci reacted with the lectin and titres with some organisms varied on repeat testing. The technique is regarded as unreliable for the identification of Neisseria species.
