REASONS FOR VACCINE TITER TESTING *

·    To determine that animal is protected (suggested by a positive test result)
·    To identify a susceptible animal (suggested by a negative test result)
·    To determine whether an individual animal has responded to a vaccine
·    To determine whether an individual vaccine is effectively immunizing animals
