Lesson 3/Learning Event 1
Test for V and G agents. After the detector ticket is prepared, it is used with the aspirator bulb
adapter to perform the test for V and G agents.
Step 1. Install the square end of a prepared detector ticket in the aspirator bulb adapter with the
plastic cross support behind the disk facing toward the bulb (figure 23).
Step 2. Direct the ticket toward the ground (figure 23) and compress the bulb 60 times. Allow the
bulb to reinflate completely between compressions.

TEST FOR V AND G AGENTS.
Step 3. Withdraw the ticket from the aspirator bulb adapter and insert the round end of the ticket
into the envelope so that the square end still is not covered by the plastic.
Step 4. Carefully add two drops of substrate solution onto the disk at the square end of the ticket
(figure 24). Push the ticket all the way into the envelope. Massage the ticket in the envelope.
