Irshad Quzy, G. N. Purohit

Abstract


The incidence of brucellosis was evaluated in a small camel farm at Al-Ain, UAE by using chromatographic immunoassay. The incidence was found to be 0.2%. The test was found to be of high accuracy and positive camels were confirmed to be having brucellosis by rose Bengal and other tests. Thus the study indicated that chromatographic kits available for diagnosis of brucellosis in cattle can be used for camels with high precision.
