The rapid detection of cholera vibrio in water with the help of fluorescent antiserum makes only an approximate answer possible and should be accompanied by bacteriological investigation by the classical method as well as all other express methods. Fluorescent antiserum can be used with success in the course of ordinary classic analysis for the rapid identification of vibrios in smears prepared either from peptone water used in the capacity of enrichment medium or from colonies suspected of belonging to cholera vibrio. The method of the rapid identification cholera vibrio with the help of fluorescent anticholera serum can be used with the aim of the rapid identification of cholera vibrios not just in water, but in other objects of the environment, particularly in the investigation of smears made from various surfaces and items.
