    Abstract

    Latex agglutination and agar gel immunodiffusion were used to identify muscle tissue extracts. Both tests reacted with white-tailed deer extracts at a higher dilution than extracts from other cervids and both detected cervid antigens in sausage extracts. Latex agglutination was consistently more sensitive than agar gel diffusion. Sausage spices at five times normal concentrations and ascorbic acid did not produce false positive reactions.
