Q-fever CFT2 kit

Catalog number:



A white suspension of highly purified Coxiella burnetii cells in phase I in phosphate – buffered saline with thiomersal as a preservative. A sediment is formed after a longer period of storage. The sediment can easily be resuspended by shaking. The antigen has a titer of 10.
Positive serum
Rabbit serum containing specific complement fixing antibodies against C. burnetii in phase I and II. Preservative: sodium azide.
Negative serum
Rabbit serum with no specific complement fixing antibodies against C. burnetii. Preservative: sodium azide.


The antigen is used for the detection of antibodies against C. burnetii in the blood serum samples of humans and animals by the complement fixation (CF) test. It is especially applied for the detection of elevated levels of the C. burnetii phase I antibodies. Thus, it is articularly useful for both confirmation and therapeutic follow-up of the chronic Q fever in humans.
