Serological tests onl-phase variants of some bacteria

Indirect haemagglutination (IHA), metabolism inhibition (MI) and growth inhibition (GI) techniques were used to test streptococcal, staphylococcal and proteusl-phase variants against antisera prepared in rabbits. All three methods were specific and high titres of antibody were measured by the IHA and MI techniques. In tests on the streptococcal variant, IHA… CONTINUE READING
