Abstract

A procedure for the production of antirabies fluorescent antibody conjugate using equine therapeutic hyperimmune serum is described. The IgG fraction is rapid and easily purified and after labelled with the fluorochrome. By this procedure, laboratories without facilities to take up the work of raising antirabic serum can obtain high quality conjugates.
