S. flexneri pool

Back

General

S. flexneri is one of four different species of Shigella. S. flexneri consists of 6 serotypes.

Product description

S. flexneri pool antiserum is produced by immunising rabbits with killed whole cells from types 1-6. The product is supplied in a vial with 3 mL ready-to-use antiserum, sufficient for at least 150 tests.

Use

The Shigella strain is cultured overnight on a selective or a non-selective agar plate. A small colony is transferred to a slide and mixed with a drop of antiserum, and the slide is tilted slowly back and forth. If the bacterial colony has antigens that are homologous with the antiserum used, the cells will form antigen-antibody bonds, and clear aggregates will appear (agglutination). The result is read within 5-10 seconds of mixing. The reading is easiest to perform and clearest if the slide is held up in front of a light source against a black background.
