Comparison of efficiency of the rapid whole blood agglutination test with the serum agglutination test for pullorum disease



Comparison of efficiency of the rapid whole blood agglutination test with the serum agglutination test for pullorum disease



Canadian Jour Res 6(4): 381-386



Results with the rapid whole-blood agglutination test applied in the field agreed closely with results secured with the rapid serum-agglutination test, applied in the laboratory. When the whole blood agglutination test was applied by the inexperienced, results differed from the laboratory test by 12% as compared with a difference of 1.3% when the whole-blood agglutination test was applied by an experienced technician. The rapid whole-blood agglutination test lent itself readily to practical application in the field. The extremely low cost makes feasible the application and repetition of the test on a large scale. Since it is known from previous work that 1 agglutination test will not eliminate all carriers of pullorum disease, the rapid whole-blood agglutination test should be applied several times a year until at least 2 successive negative tests are obtained on each bird of the flock.
