Mycoplasma synoviae is a cause of lesions in synovitis and respiratory disease. MS is egg transmitted, and may be spread laterally by direct or indirect contact. Mycoplasma infections of poultry may be readily confused with other respiratory diseases and may be obvious only when present in conjunction with complicating respiratory infections such as Newcastle disease or infectious bronchitis. MS infection should be considered whenever synovitis lesions are present. Differentiation from infectious tenosynovitis, Staphylococcus aureus, or other bacterial infection is essential1. Antibodies in serum can be detected by the Enzyme Linked Immunosorbant Assay (ELISA). However, other serologic testing methods such as serum plate agglutination and culturing techniques are recommended for confirmation of infection1. The levels of MS antibodies in serum, as well as the immune status of entire flocks can be monitored using ELISA.

Inactivated antigen is bound to a microwell. Diluted sera is added to the microwell and incubated. Any anti-MS antibodies present in the serum will bind to the MS on the microwell forming an MS antigen-antibody complex. After washing away any unbound material, anti-Chicken IgG Alkaline Phosphatase conjugate is added to the microwell. The conjugate will bind to the MS antigen-antibody complex. After incubation any unbound conjugate is removed by washing. Enzyme substrate is then added to the microwell. The substrate reacts with any Alkaline Phosphatase present and forms a yellow product. In the final step the reaction is stopped, fixing the color. The intensity of the color is measured photometrically at 405 - 410 nm.
