The present work was conducted to study the seroprevalence of Brucella infection amongst the cattle population in and around Rewa district (Madhya Pradesh). Seroprevalence study was conducted using Rose Bengal Plate Test and SVANOVIR Brucella Antibody c-ELISA kit. C-ELISA is OIE referred gold standard test for detecting Brucella antibodies. Around 50 serum samples were screened for the presence of Brucella antibody using both Rose bengal plate test (RBPT), and Competitive Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent assay (c- ELISA) kit. Out of 50 samples tested with Rose Bengal Plate Test and c-ELISA, 42% and 20% were detected to be positive respectively. Rose Bengal Plate Test was not sensitive enough to detect weak positive sample, which were detected by c-ELISA, considering it as gold standard test for seroprevalence study of Brucella infection.
