The most frequent sponsor, the German op- tical firm of Ernst Leitz, alternated two advertisements: one featuring a large illustration of a late model microscope and announcing its availability for purchase at Leitz's St. Petersburg distributor, and another advertising the plethora of laboratory equipment - thermostats, sterilizing equipment, slides, stains and all of the other paraphernalia needed to outfit a bacteriological laboratory down to diagnostician's marking pencils - that could be readily obtained at the Petersburg distributor or through the firm's catalogue. Those who read further learned of opportunities to receive training in bac- teriological diagnosis of diseases or even in recently developed serum ther- apy at Petersburg.'s Eleninskii Clinical Institute and Moscow University's Bacteriological Institute.
