Can we help you?

Composition:  

The kit contains:

Trypanosoma equiperdum antigen - lyophilised mass of disintegrated trypanosomes.

The antigen is calibrated using a standard positive and negative serum, its capacity being adjusted so that in working dilution (4 x more concentrated than its titre) it provides a visible reaction with positive serum containing a minimum amount of specific antibodies in the dilution of 1:4. In working dilution it should not be anti-complementary and show false positive reactions with negative serum.

Control positive serum:

  • Rabbit serum containing specific complement-fixing antibodies against Trypanosoma equiperdum preserved with phenol. It is calibrated using a standard antigen, its capacity being adjusted so that it exhibits a positive reaction in the dilution 1:16 at a minimum.

Haemolytic amboceptor:

  • Rabbit serum containing thermostable antibodies against sheep blood cells, preserved with phenol.

Guinea pig complement:

  • Guinea pig serum.

Solution for dilution:

  • Solution to re-hydrate the lyophilised antigen and complement to the original volume.
  • Concentrated Mayer’s buffer saline solution.

Indication:

For serological diagnostics of stallion infection using CBR.


Performing the test:

Before use, antigen and guinea pig complement are diluted to the original volume (1 ml) using a dilution solution that is a part of the kit. For all other dilutions performed during the test the Mayer’s concentrated solution is to be diluted with sterile re-distilled water in a ratio of 1+4 before use.

Haemolytic amboceptor and complement should be titrated before titration itself.

Titration of haemolytic amboceptor:

Prepare 1:1000 basic dilution and from this an auxiliary dilution series of 1:10,000 or more. Starting with the highest dilution, pipette 0.2 ml of amboceptor of appropriate dilution in test tubes of each of the titration series. Pipette 0.2 ml of 2% suspension of ram blood cells, 0.4 ml of Mayer’s solution, and 0.2 ml of complement diluted 1:20 in all test tubes. At the same time complete the series with three test tubes of common controls: amboceptor, complement, and blood cells. Shake all tubes thoroughly and place immediately in water bath at 37ºC. Read the results after a 30-minute incubation.

20-minute incubation in water bath at the temperature of 37 ºC.

  • K 1 – amboceptor control
  • K 2 – complement control
  • K 3 – blood cell control
Evaluation of reaction:
  • ++++                - complete inhibition of haemolysis /+4/
  • +++, ++, +        - inhibition of haemolysis in gradually decreasing intensity /+3, +2, +1/
  • -                      - 100% haemolysis – complete lysis of blood cells

A minimum haemolytic dose of amboceptor (MHD) is contained in 0.2 ml of the highest dilution of amboceptor that in the abundance of complement totally dissolves 0.2 ml of the suspension of ram blood cells (the last totally clear test tube). To sensibilise the blood cells, amboceptor is diluted so that it contains 4 MHD in  0.2  ml. The haemolytic system is prepared by mixing 2% suspension of blood cells with the same volume of amboceptor in the working dose of 4 MHD.

Complement titration:

It is diluted immediately before use using chilled dilution solution and is stored in the fridge. The basic dilution to proceed from is 1:25. Complement titration is done according to the table.

Results should be read after 30-minute incubation in a water bath at 37ºC. Titre of complement is the smallest amount of complement that, under given conditions, is able to dissolve all blood cells of the haemolytic system. Complement in the dose of 1.5 MHD is used as working dilution (e.g. complement titre is 2.4%, working dilution is 3.6%).

Used controls
  • K 1 – complement control
  • K 2 – amboceptor control
  • K 3 – blood cell control

Examined serum should be inactivated before titration in a water bath at 60oC for the period of 30 minutes. Examined serum should be diluted for titration as follows: 1 + 3 (titre 1 : 4), 1 + 7 (titre 1 : 8), etc. The same amount of antigen in its working dilution should be added to prepared dilutions of serum followed by the addition of the same part of titrated complement (1.5 MHD), and the serum is then incubated in water bath at 37oC for the period of 30 min. Then a double amount of the haemolytic system is added (the same part of 2% ram blood cells and haemolytic amboceptor - 4 MHD). Incubation is performed in a water bath at 37°C for 30 min. The test for anti-complementarity of the examined serum is performed in the same way. In this series antigen is replaced with Mayer’s dilution solution. A part of titration is represented by control of the guinea pig complement, haemolytic system, and the used antigen with control positive serum in its working dilution.
