Various aspects of the use of direct fluorescent antibody tests for the identification of N. gonorrhoeae were investigated. Different colony types within a strain exhibited fluorescence of about the same intensity, while differences occurred between strains. The best results were shown using the CDC conjugate prepared by the 20-10 minute method using acetone fixation.
