Evaluation of Diagnostic Assays for Chlamydophila abortus in Australian Export Sheep

Project Code:  LIVE.0125

Year of Published: 2007

The project was undertaken to compare the performance of the Complement Fixation Test (CFT) and ELISA test for the quantification of Chlamydophila abortus antibodies in sheep.

The project was undertaken to compare the performance of the Complement Fixation Test (CFT) and ELISA test for the quantification of Chlamydophila abortus antibodies in sheep.

The report identified that ELISA gave the most repeatable and reproducible results in the detection of the Chlamydophila abortus antibody with equivalent sensitivity and higher specificity to the CFT and thus recommends replacing the CFT with ELISA.
