<p>2E4 antibody-treated <i>E. coli BL21</i> bacteria were incubated with complement from pooled horse, donkey, pig or dog plasma, or incubated with the same pooled plasma pre-treated with 20 µg/ml of CSA, OSCS or PSGAG. Bacterial viability was determined by an SYTO9/PI staining bacterial viability kit and flow cytometry. Dead and live bacterial populations and percentages are indicated. Data shown are representative of three independent experiments.</p
