Abstract

The current diagnostic procedures for Q fever are discussed, especially isolation and propagation of Coxiella burnetii in BGM cell cultures, detection of antigen by an enzyme immunoassay using a biotinylated monoclonal antibody and the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The latter is of special importance for differentiation of isolates.
