Fifty cases clinically labeled as acute gonorrhoeae were investigated for gonococcal etiology. Smears were positive in 47 (94.0%) samples. N. gonorrhoeae could be identified in 48 (96.0%) cases by culture method. Samples showing growth on Thayer Martin and/or chocolate agar media were subjected to monoclonal GC Test which utilizes the principle of co-agglutination and detects the antigens of outer membrane protein of N. gonorrhoeae. By using COA 39 (81.3%) strains were identified as N. gonorrhoeae after 24 hrs. 44 (91.6%) strains belonged to serogroup WII/WIII, showing it to be the major serogroup causing infections in the community. It was concluded that in busy clinical laboratories N. gonorrhoeae could be identified with rapidity as well as with accuracy by using co-agglutination technique, using Phadebact(r) Monoclonal G. C. Test.
