Comparison of Standard tube agglutination test and indirect haemagglutination test in the detection of Listerial antibodies in animalsPushpa H. Rathod, N. M. Shah, A. I. Dadawala, H. C. Chauhan, Sandip S. Patel, Khushboo Singh, P. Ranaware, B. S. Chandel.
Efficacy of standard tube agglutination test (STAT) & indirect haemagglutination test (IHA) was compared for detecting listerial antibodies in cattle and buffaloes. Out of 530 serum samples (263 cattle and 267 buffaloes) 165 serum samples (31.13 %) gave positive reaction by STAT while 151 serum samples (28.49 %) gave positive reaction by IHA. It was observed that both the tests are equally efficient in detecting listerial antibodies.
