- The Gradwohl Biological Laboratories, of 928 N. Grand Avenue, St. Louis, have issued an exceedingly attractive and valuable 32-page pamphlet called “The Doctor's Laboratory Manual.” The present issue is volume 1, number 1, November, 1919. The announcement states that the object of the publication is to place before the profession both the simple tests that the physician can make himself, as well as the more complicated tests that require the facilities of a modern laboratory. Numerous quotations from standard literature, together with well written descriptions of the methods pursued in this laboratory make it a valuable handbook of ready information for the busy practitioner.
