In brief: Blood tests

Brucellosis is diagnosed in a laboratory by finding brucella organisms in samples of blood or bone marrow.
Also, blood tests can be done to detect antibodies against the bacteria. If this method is used, two blood samples should be collected 2 weeks apart. For more information try the following webpage: http://www.Cdc.Gov/nczved/divisions/dfbmd/diseases/brucellosis/.
