Abstract

SUMMARY

A McCoy cell line persistently infected with was examined by light microscopy and electronmicroscopy after specific labelling with a direct immunoperoxidase conjugate. Mycoplasmas were readily detected in monolayer cultures in bright-field conditions and these were related to labelled organisms observed by electronmicroscopy in thin sections of similar cells. The specificity of the conjugate for was demonstrated by blocking with unconjugated antiserum, and by its inability to detect Non-specific background labelling was consistently absent.
