Rapid detection of cytomegalovirus infections by a tissue culture-centrifugation-monoclonal antibody-biotin/avidin immunofluorescence technique.

Abstract

A technique using centrifugation, early antigen detection by biotin/avidin fluorescence assay (CEADBAFA) for detection of CMV was compared to a similar method without biotin/avidin (CEADIFA) and to tissue culture alone (TC). The technique using CEADBAFA was the most sensitive of the three assays. The number of CMV-specific fluorescent nuclei was 2-15 fold… (More)
