A rapid reproducible test for determining rabies neutralizing antibody

Bull World Health Organ. 1973 May;48(5):535-41.


Rabies neutralizing antibody levels in human and animal sera were tested by a rapid fluorescent focus inhibition technique, in which BHK-21 cells were infected with tissue-culture-adapted rabiesvirus. The results, obtained in 24 hours, were comparable with those of the standard mouse neutralization test.
