Abstract
Preliminary results on multistrange particle production in central Pb + Pb collisions at 158 GeV per nucleon are presented. The NA49 experiment provid es the capability of performing measurements of multistrange particles in t wo independent methods. The complementary acceptance of the methods in the MTPC and the VTPC2 detector cover a wide range of rapidity. Transverse mass spectra and rapidity distributions are presented. Preliminary particle rat ios are shown and a first estimation of full phase-space multiplicity is co mpleted.
