This report describes a rapid method of detecting typhoid and paratyphoid bacteria in the blood by means of specific luminescent sera. The method was tested with an artificial introduction of typhoid and paratyphoid bacteria into the blood. The studies demonstrated a higher sensitivity of the described method than that of the classical bacteriological method of detecting blood cultures.
