Novel latex agglutination method with chicken anti-protein A for detection of Staphylococcus aureus infections.

By A Larsson and J Sjöquist

Abstract

A latex agglutination assay for the detection of protein A-secreting Staphylococcus aureus strains or strains with protein A in the cell wall is described. The assay utilizes latex particles coated with chicken anti-protein A antibodies. Chicken antibodies do not react with protein G-producing streptococci or rheumatoid factor, thus avoiding false-positive reactions
