Standard Febrile Antigen – Proteus OXK Antigen
Proteus OXK Antigen – 5ml
Proteus OXK Antigen
Rapid Labs stained febrile antigen suspensions can be used to identify and quantitate specific antibodies in human sera following infection with certain Rickettsiae pathogens. These febrile antigens are suitable for both the rapid slide and tube agglutination tests against human sera for the detection of these agglutinins. These antigen suspensions are killed bacteria, stained to enhance the reading of agglutination tests.
Proteus OX2, OX19 and OXK suspensions are used in the detection of Rickettsial antibodies as these species appear to share a polysaccharide with certain Rickettsia species and therefore produce agglutinins identical to them.
Available in 5ml vials or bulk sizes.
