Efficiency of indirect immunofluorescence microscopy (IFM) for detection of M. pulmonis antibody (IgG) in rats was compared with results of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), complement fixation (CF), cultural isolation and histopathology. IFM was carried out on M. pulmonis infected BHK-21 cells grown on cover slips or multitest slides. After(More)
1. A simple negative pressure isolator is described which can be used to work with pathogen germs in all laboratories without additional safety precautions. 2. A simple and reliable heating device for the common germtight fibre glass filters used in gnotobiotechnics is described. By this outgoing humid air is prevented from reaching the dewpoint inside the(More)
The occurrence and spread of staphylococcal infections in stocks of SPF-animals were studied over a period of more than three years. The results were compared with observations made by other authors. Staphylococcus aureus strains isolated from both sick and healthy animals (mice, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs) as well as from veterinary staff were lysotyped(More)
