Abstract: The performance of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), an indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT) and a rapid conglutination test (RCT) for the detection of antibodies against Babesia bovis, was evaluated with 462 cattle sera from Bahia State, Brazil. The results showed a concordance of 96.6% between the ELISA and IFAT, 90.5% between the ELISA and RCT, and 91.8% between the IFAT and RCT. Although the prevalence rates determined by ELISA (97.2%) and IFAT (96.8%) were higher than that indicated by the RCT (92.9%), performances of the three serological tests were very similar and characterized the region studied as enzootically stable to B. bovis.
