Shigella are differentiated from the closely related Escherichia coli on the basis of pathogenicity, physiology and serology. Pro-Lab polyvalent Shigella antisera are intended to aid in the serological identification after culture, isolation and biochemical characterization of Shigella organisms. These antisera are prepared in rabbits using reference strains according to recognized guidelines, and absorbed to remove cross-reactions. Shigella antisera are supplied in 2.0 ml dropper bottles, in a ready to use format.
