The first serological test to identify antibodies against Legionella pneumophila was the indirect immunofluorescence antibody test (IFAT) developed in 1977 at the Centers for Disease Control, Atlanta, Ga., USA [1]. Several other tests have since been developed, among them rapid microagglutination tests (RMAT) [2] and numerous (mostly experimental) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA). ELISAs have the advantages of simplicity and rapidity as well as the potential for quantitative and… CONTINUE READING
