[Original research] [Infectious diseases]
Tatyana Golovinskaya; Olga Tsygankova; Alla Ryazanova; Alexandr Kulichenko;

The specificity of anthrax diagnostic bacteriophage «186» has been studied in a representative sample of saprophytes of the genus Bacillus in comparison with commercial specimen of anthrax bacteriophages «Gamma А-26», «Fah», «R/D-Ph-6» and experimental batches of bacteriophages «VА-9», «К», «Saratov» used for the identification of Bacillus anthracis in laboratory practice. The studied bacteriophage «186», as well as bacteriophages «Fah» , «К», «R/D-Ph-6» and «Saratov», has shown 100%
specificity of lytic activity; bacteriophages «Gamma А-26» and «VА-9» – 93,2% and 91,9% respectively.
