In recent years it has been our desire to evaluate the presence of antidiuretic substance (ADS) in the bloods of animals under various experimental conditions (Giere, 1951; Eversole, Giere and Rock, 1952; Giere and Eversole, 1954; Eversole and Giere, 1954). For these determinations we have used the method of Birnie, et al. (1950) and also Ames and van Dyke's (1952) modification of the intravenous method of Jeffers, Livezey and Austin (1942). Although these technics are qualitatively accurate it has been our experience that they are oftentimes difficult to duplicate. The following technic is offered as a semi-quantitative procedure which can be duplicated by a practiced individual.
