UV-Visible spectral detection of vaccinated blood samples of sheep for anthrax


UV-Visible spectroscopic technique is employed to study the spectral differences between preand post-vaccinated blood samples of sheep with anthrax spore vaccine. The internal standards among the application peaks were calculated. There was a marked difference in the absorption levels of the pre and post vaccinated blood samples. The resultant variation is attributed to the production of antibodies in the animal. Spectral study can emerge as an alternate and cost effective test for screening vaccinated animal or animal product.
