Six laboratories took part in a study to assess an experimental kit for the diagnosis of rabies using the rapid rabies enzyme immunodiagnosis (RREID) technique. The test is based on the immunocapture of rabies antigens present in homogenized brain specimens, followed by enzyme immunoassay. A total of 1253 specimens from various geographical locations and 27 animal species were tested with the RREID technique, and also with the fluorescent antibody test (FAT), which was used as a reference… CONTINUE READING
