Microscopic agglutination test (MAT) and IgM enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) are the two tests currently employed in the serological diagnosis of leptospirosis. Under certain instances the samples positive by IgM ELISA in other laboratories were found to be negative in our laboratory by MAT and vice-versa. This prompted us to conduct a comparative study. ...

Monodon baculovirus (MBV) affects the cultured shrimp and results in production and economic losses in the shrimp hatcheries and farms. Microscopic observation of the malachite green stained wet mount squashes from the hepatopancreas for the presence of MBV occlusion bodies is the widely followed method to diagnose MBV. This method was compared with a sensitive ...
