Comparative sensitivity of gel-diffusion and tube agglutination tests for the detection of Brucella canis antibodies in experimentally infected dogs.


The microslide gel-diffusion and macro-tube agglutination techniques to detect Brucella canis antibodies in dogs were compared. Sera from dogs experimentally infected with B. canis and a random sample of dog sera with unknown histories of exposure to this organism were examined. The results of the gel-diffusion method employing specific rough Brucella… (More)
