The Microscopic Agglutination Test was performed after the baseline titer was done as per the guidelines given by the WHO manual on Leptospirosis and results were recorded and tabulated.
Hartskeerl, "Leptospirosis serodiagnosis by the microscopic agglutination test," Current Protocols in Microbiology, 2014.
Leptospirosis was diagnosed in patients who had at least a fourfold increase in antibody titer against serotype of leptospirae in paired serum samples by a microscopic agglutination test (MAT).
Microscopic agglutination test (MAT) is considered to be the''gold standard'' for diagnosing leptospirosis.
All the samples were tested for the presence of anti-DENV, anti-chikungunya virus (CHIKV) IgM antibodies by IgM capture ELISA kits developed by National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune (10), and anti-leptospiral antibodies by in-house developed microscopic agglutination test (MAT) with a panel of known endemic antigens (11).
