Vaccination simulates the production of antibodies that can circulate for 2 to 5 weeks. Contaminated serum, frozen and thawed serum, and cross-reactions to other antibodies can also cause false positives. False positive reactions can be reduced by heating serum to 56°C for 30 minutes or by diluting serum (Butcher 2007). Typically, plate agglutination assays are more sensitive, but HI assays are more specific. ELISA is the third type of antibody detecting assay. In this assay, antibodies or antigens are bound to the wells of a microtiter plate.

A constant monitoring program is a key to early intervention. In addition, a strict biosecurity protocol is also very helpful for preventing infections with M. gallisepticum and M. synoviae. Entire flocks can become infected in 2 to 10 days (Feberwee et al. 2005a) and given that antibiotics may take 3 days to be effective, the infection can be difficult to control once it has begun. Thus, the course of action is dependent on many factors including the type of birds that are being produced. The next section will discuss three types of production operations and how M.

The complement proteins will react with these complexes and be depleted. When commonly used sheep red blood cells with their own antibody complexes are added, there will be no complement left in the serum. If no antibodies against the concrete virus are present, the complement will not be depleted and it will react with the sheep red blood cells antibody complexes, lysing the red blood. 4 Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) serves for detection and quantification of specific antibodies in sera.
