Sort: Oldest first
One c.c. of a 1-1000 solution of potassium permanganate is gently poured over an equal amount of the suspected cerebrospinal fluid in a test-tube; an excess of globulin in the fluid is shown by the appearance of a yellow ring at the line of junction and if the tube is shaken all the fluid becomes of a bright yellow color; if the cerebrospinal fluid is normal, the rose-violet color of the permanganate persists.
