Abstract

The evaluation of the ELISA technique has been studied in the special case of its application to the serological diagnosis of chlamydiosis in goats. The results showed chat this technique is reliable (accurate and reproducible) and efficient. Sera from 96 goats were studied with the ELISA technique, indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) and complement fixation (CF), the latter being the standard method in France. A comparison of the results revealed a similarity of findings with ELISA and indirect immunofluorescence and the greater sensitivity of the ELISA technique relative to that of complement fixation.
