Abstract
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.

Key words: Standard tube agglutination test, Indirect Haemagglutination test, Antibodies, Listeria, Laboratory Technique, Detection.
