Berkshire, UK) and weakly positive by using the direct agglutination test
(1:3,200; cutoff 1:1,600).
The usefulness of direct agglutination test
, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and polymerase chain reaction for the detection of Toxoplasma gondii in wild animals.
Reagents and card / cassette in amounts calculated on the amount of performed tests - Blood group (ABO and Rh system, immune antibodies in the test PTA) - 45 000 examinations for 3 years,- Newborn blood group (ABO and Rh system - 2serie, polyvalent serum BTA - 2 100 tests for 3 years,- Blood recipients blood group (ABO and Rh system, immune antibodies in the test PTA - 30 600 tests for 3 years,- Blood group donors and compatibility tests (checking the ABO and Rh group donor, proper attempt conformity) - 53 500 tests for 3 years,- Identification of antigen DVI direct agglutination test
in newborns - 600 tests for 3 years.
It has been found that the results of direct agglutination test
are less reproducible than those obtained from Dye tests.
13 tested 65 serum samples from urban and peri-urban residents aged between 15 days and 65 years by modified direct agglutination test
in Nazareth Town, Ethiopia.
Recently, quest for a simple diagnostic test for VL has led to the development of several novel tests, such as direct agglutination test
(DAT), rK39 dipstick assay, and latex agglutination test (KAtex) of urine.
The AUW Biomedical Research Laboratory (ABRL), as the WHO and Federal Ministry of Health focal institution, has produced two batches of Direct Agglutination Test
(DAT) Antigen used for diagnosis of Kala-azar in Sudan.
Direct agglutination test
for diagnosis of Toxoplasma gondii infection:method for increasing sensitivity and specificity.
Nongovermnent healthcare providers and Government of Southern Sudan--administered healthcare facilities thus had to confirm suspected kala-azar by direct agglutination test
before they could receive a supply of the first-line treatment--sodium stibogluconate--from WHO through Pharmaciens sans Frontieres.
This was followed by determining antibody titre in the sera using a direct agglutination test
From January 2000 to February 2006, a total of 3,645 patients suspected of having kala-azar were screened at Amudat Health Centre by using the direct agglutination test
or rK39 antigen-based dipsticks (6); 2,088 patients with confirmed disease were treated with daily intramuscular injections of sodium stibogluconate or meglumine antimonite, 20 mg/kg bodyweight, for 30 days.
It was not possible to predict the class of antibodies by using direct agglutination tests
