The Cooperative National Brucellosis Control Program currently uses a number of tests in the serological diagnosis of brucellosis. Some tests, such as the Buffered Acidified Plate Antigen (BAPA) test, and the card test, are very economical, yet are prone to subjectivity and variation. These tests, while relatively more sensitive than other tests, are lacking in specificity. All reactors are required to confirmed by FPA prior to release.
