Rapid immunotyping of Chlamydia trachomatis with monoclonal antibodies in a solid-phase enzyme immunoassay.

Abstract

The technical complexity of determining the serovar of Chlamydia trachomatis strains has limited the use of serotyping in clinical and epidemiologic studies. We developed a simple method for rapidly serotyping isolates of C. trachomatis by using monoclonal antibodies in a dot-enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) system. Isolates were passaged three to… (More)
