The value of the cell enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay as a possible replacement for the indirect immunofluorescence antibody test for the estimation of antibodies against BD virus was assessed in four animal models. The serum antibody response was measured by both assay systems;the variability of both tests was less than one diluent step, and correlation of the two tests was assessed using regression analysis. The study showed that the all four animal models gave satisfactory correlation of CELISA and IFA. There, CELISA is acceptable for use in mouse, rabbit, chicken and rat models.
