Serology

The method of choice used in serology is ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay). Alternative methods IFA (Indirect Immunofluorescence Assay) and Haemagglutination Inhibition Test (HIT) are used as well for verification of ELISA results. However, some other methods are used in serological diagnostics: MAT (Micro-agglutination test) for Leptospir serotypes, Rapid Plasma Reagens RPR test for Treponema cuniculi.
