The latex agglutination test (LAT) kit "CapriLAT" is particularly useful in identifying animals suffering from CCPP and combines sensitivity and low cost with ease of application in the field, without the need for any specialist training or equipment.
Because composition of the assay buffer may play a vital role in controlling the physicochemical processes of immunological recognition and agglutination (13,24-25), we sought to optimize the composition of the reaction medium for the immunoagglutination assays within required ranges of pH, ionic strength, and surfactants.
