ROJAS, X et al. The use of polarized fluorescence assay (PF) and competitive ELISA test (C-Elisa) for the diagnosis of Brucellosis in South American camelids. Arch. med. vet. [online]. 2004, vol.36, n.1, pp. 59-64. ISSN 0301-732X. doi: 10.4067/S0301-732X2004000100006.
Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease representing a risk contact with, or consuming, their raw milk and raw dairy several animal species, including camelids, the aim of this Polarization assay (PF) and Competitive ELISA (C-ELISA), along with conventional serological tests such as the Rose Complement Fixation test (CF). A total of 336 serum samples herd of the IXth Region (Chile), clinically and serologically analyzed considering a threshhold of 98.7 milipolarization of them obtained by means of the median of the last percentile. SAT tests. The CF results were not included as many samples the FP and C-ELISA tests, two samples were positive in point, the significance of which is discused in the text.
