Immunofluorescent Techniques Applicable To Detecting Aeromonas Liquefaciens

The use of fluorescent labelled antibody (FA) systems provide a means for detecting both the presence of the agent, Aeromonas liquefaciens and fish antibodies to that agent. Bacteria from experimentally infected fish could be identified within 6 hours after obtaining the sample by the FA technique. The preparation of specific antiserum to A. liquefaciens and a proposed method for rapid detection of the bacterium from field specimens is presented.
