Methods for the specific diagnosis of proliferative kidney disease in salmonids



Methods for the specific diagnosis of proliferative kidney disease in salmonids



Medicina Veterinaria 10(5): 276-282, 284



Diagnosis of proliferative kidney disease (PKD) usually relies on detection of the aetiological agent, proliferative kidney organism X (PKX) in fresh kidney mounts, kidney impressions stained with Giemsa or haematoxylin-eosin stained kidney sections. New techniques for the detection of PKD which rely on the specific binding properties of PKX are described.
