Abstract:Any desired degree of inhibition of coagulation in the blood of the cockroach may be obtained by treating the roaches (Blatella germanica and Periplaneta orientalis) with acetic acid vapors when the time of exposure and temperature are controlled. The apparatus and technique employed in subjecting the cockroaches to acetic acid vapor together with some data obtained by the use of this method are presented.
