Studies on serological identification of the Mycobacterium avium-M. intracellulare complex, with special reference to the fluorescent antibody test



Studies on serological identification of the Mycobacterium avium-M. intracellulare complex, with special reference to the fluorescent antibody test



Nihon Juigaku Zasshi. Japanese Journal of Veterinary Science 37(1): 11-20



The fluorescent antibody (FA) test was compared with the agglutination and complement fixation (CF) test in the serological identification of the M. avium-M. intracellulare complex. As a serological method of identification, the CF test was a little less effective than the agglutination test. The agglutinin adsorption was necessary for about half the number of strains of the serotypes examined. A few cross reactions were eliminated by the use of CF antigen purified with chloroform.
