Abstract: The comparative efficacy of Rose Bengal Test (RBT), Standard Agglutination Test (STAT) and indirect Enzyme Linked Immnosorbant Assay (i-ELISA) was analysed in bovine brucellosis serodiagnosis (n=821) from various districts of Tamil Nadu. Using i-ELISA as a gold standard test, RBT and STAT showed sensitivity of 54.54 & 61.81 and specificity of 99.60 & 99.73 percent respectively. On kappa statistics with comparison to i-ELISA, RBT and STAT showed moderate (0.66) and substantial (0.73) agreement. This study concluded that STAT and RBT can be used for screening of brucellosis when i-ELISA is not possible because of its specificity and these screening tests were warranted in field level diagnosis.
