Presumptively identify Shigella cultures for epidemiological and diagnostic purposes using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Shigella flexneri Polyvalent (1 to 6, X and Y) Agglutinating Sera. These sera are suitable for use in slide agglutination tests. Serological tests are based on the fact that antibodies produced in the serum in response to exposure to bacterial antigens will visibly agglutinate with bacteria carrying homologous antigens. Antisera provide serological identification only; full identification of an organism must be made in conjunction with biochemical testing.

Shigella flexneri can be differentiated on the basis of their reactions with specific antisera. The Remel range of polyvalent antisera cover S. flexneri types 1 to 6, X and Y. As Shigella can be confused with some non-motile serotypes of E. coli (Alkalescens‑Dispar group) an additional serum (R30164301) is available for differentiation.
Shigella flexneri Polyvalent (1 to 6, X and Y) Agglutinating Sera are produced in rabbits and preserved with 0.5% phenol. Each dropper bottle contains 2 mL liquid and is supplied ready to use.
