This work has been formulated to contribute to the enhancement of diagnostic capabilities by studying different serological techniques. The study area was chosen for their high camel populations, ELgadaref State. A total of 343 serum samples from different camel herds were collected. Serum samples were subjected to serological investigation; all samples were tested using three serological tests which were Rose Bengal Plate Test, competitive ELISA and Complement Fixation Test. Seroprevalence was (36.2%, 42.6 and 19.8%) with the RBT, CFT and cELISA respectively.
