Abstract

A latex agglutination test was developed and evaluated for the rapid presumptive identification of Pseudomonas pseudomallei, the causative organism of melioidosis. The test was 100% sensitive for 52 isolates of Ps pseudomallei and 100% specific when tested with other medically important Pseudomonas species and Enterobacteriaceae. A subsequent field trial, with clinical specimens from patients with suspected melioidosis, confirmed the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
