I am, as the title indicates, searching for an antibody to E. risticci the
causative agent of Potomac Horse Fever.  We are developing a test for the
organism in formalin fixed paraffin embedded sections, so ideally the
antibody would be of rabbit, goat, or mouse origin.  Most people are using
convalescent horse serum in an indirect FA test, this source of primary
antibody is not useful for the detection of organisms in tissue sections.
A thousand thanks to anyone who can help me find a source of antibody to
E. risticci.
