Capture ELISA quantitation of mouse adenovirus type 1 in infected organs

Methods Mol Med. 2007;130:215-21. doi: 10.1385/1-59745-166-5:215.


A capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was optimized for identification of mouse adenovirus type 1 in infected brain homogenates. The ELISA method allows for a much faster quantitation of virus in infected organs than plaque assays. Methods for organ homogenization and the subsequent capture ELISA are described in this chapter.
