A panel of five serovar-specific monoclonal antibodies which distinguish the five known avian serovars of Chlamydia psittaci was used to serotype 45 European avian Chlamydia psittaci isolates. Chlamydial antigen was grown in Buffalo green monkey (BGM) cells or in embryonated chicken eggs and was then inoculated into BGM cells. Serotyping was performed in an indirect immunofluorescence test. The 45 European isolates included 22 isolates from the order Psittaciformes, 9 isolates from the order… CONTINUE READING
