Ros-Bendoll - Livestock Vaccine - Brucella Rose Bengal Plate Test Antigen
Ros-Bendoll is a killed standardised suspension of Brucella abortus S 99 strain stained by rose Bengal dye. Indications and Contraindications: It is used for serologic diagnosis of brucellosis by detecting Immunoglobulins induced by smooth Brucella species (B. abortus, B. melitensis and B. suis) in blood serum of humans and animals. False positive reactions may be observed due to nonspecific reactions (like natural antibodies) or cross reacted antibodies generated by vaccine strains or unrelated bacterial species like Y. enterocolitica 09, Salmonella spp. E.coli spp. Test antijen can not detect antibodies resulted from infection caused by rough brucella strains like B.canis, B.ovis, B.abortus RB51. Because this test a screening test, all the positive samples by Ros-Bendoll should also be tested for confirmation.
Composition per dose:
- Inactivated B.abortus S99 bacterial suspension: 8 %
- Phenol: 0.45 %
- Rose-Bengal: 0.03 %
