Abstract:

The article concludes that In order to obtain a strictly specific anthrax fluorescent serum, it is necessary to carry out its adsorption by microbes which have common antigens with bacillus anthracis In order to detect bacillus anthracies in water or in the soil, it is necessary to use a strictly specific adsorbed anthrax serum and The developed method of a gradual draining of group antibodies with a short exposure of the adsorbent microbes allows to preserve the basic mass of specific antibodies in the serum The method was found to be quite adequate for the preparation of luminescent adsorbent anthrax serum and paratyphoid sera and can be tested for the adsorption of other sera.
