Abstract

A quantitative duplex time-resolved fluorescence assay, dissociation-enhanced lanthanide fluorescent immunoassay (DELFIA), was developed to measure Norwalk virus (NV)-specific IgA and IgG antibodies simultaneously. The duplex assay showed superior performance by detecting seroconversion following experimental NV infection at an earlier time point than a reference total immunoglobulin enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
