It is an acute or chronic septicaemic disease that usually affects the birds (mostly adult birds). Eradication of disease is normally done by identifying the infected flocks and eliminating the reactor birds by using serological tests, but diagnosis of the disease is much expensive because antigen used for this purpose is imported. The study, therefore, has been proposed to prepare and evaluate the stained antigen of S. gallinarum using local isolates. A total of 15 isolates were procured from Poultry Research Institute (PRI) Rawalpindi, University Diagnostic Lab (UDL) and Department of Microbiology, UVAS Lahore, which were identified by Biochemical testing and further confirmed by Polymerase Chain Reaction. Among all 15 isolates two isolates were confirmed as S. gallinarum and proceeded to prepare local antigen of S. gallinarum. Locally prepared antigen was checked with known positive and negative sera, Effect of different preservatives (Sodium azide and Thiomersal sodium) and different storage temperatures (4°C, 25°C and -20°C) was also studied after every fifteen days post storage upto 6 months to observe the stability and shelf life of local antigen. On the end of study both preservatives i.e. Sodium azide and Thiomersal sodium was found equally effective for antigen activity, whereas 4°C proved best storage temperature to be used for the antigen preservation. Activity of locally prepared antigens was also compared with the imported antigen (Charles, River, USA) stored at different temperatures regularly throughout the six months, which showed that local antigens was almost as good as the imported antigen. Summary 51 CONCLUSION Locally prepared S. gallinarum antigen was found as effective as imported antigen. Both the test preservatives (Sodium azide and Thiomersal Sodium) had the same effect on antigen preservation. Among all three test temperatures, 4°C was accepted as best storage temperature for the long term preservation of local antigen with either of the preservative.

CONCLUSION
Locally prepared S. gallinarum antigen was found as effective as imported antigen. Both the test preservatives (Sodium azide and Thiomersal Sodium) had the same effect on antigen preservation. Among all three test temperatures, 4°C was accepted as best storage temperature for the long term preservation of local antigen with either of the preservative.
