The article discusses serology and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for bovine leptospirosis. It says that leptospirosis is a vital zoonotic bacterial infection livestocks, causing stillbirths, infertility, and reduction of milk production. It mentions the study which aims to compare the use of MAT and PCR for the leptospirosis diagnosis in cattle. The study revealed that PCR is an important diagnosis tool for direct detection of leptospiral DNA.
