Comparison of an IgM Capture ELISA With a Dot Enzyme Immunoassay for Laboratory Diagnosis of Dengue Virus Infections

Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 1991 Sep;22(3):337-40.


This study describes the use of an IgM capture ELISA using cell culture derived antigens and a polyclonal rabbit antiflavivirus antisera for the detection of dengue positive cases. The IgM capture ELISA is compared with the dot enzyme immunoassay and the results are discussed in the context of dengue endemicity.
