Indirect Biospecific Interactions Of Viral Particles With Latex

Agglutination Tection Viral

Stable latex particle reagent can be used to diagnose a variety of infectious diseases, such as rotavirus, adenovirus, and canine parvovirus CPV infections. Indeed, polystyrene beads latex particles are agglutinated by antigen when coated with antibodies. The principle of the latex agglutination LA test is shown in Fig. 1. Briefly, latex microspheres coated with specific antibodies react in the presence of the antigen. A positive reaction is characterized by macroscopically visible...

Indirect Agglutination Test

Indirect Agglutination Test

Recent years have heralded an increase in the use of clinical diagnostic methods involving immunological procedures because they are specific and have high sensitivity. Of the many heterogeneous and homogeneous immunological assay methods available, those based on the agglutination of latex particles continue to be widely used in biology and medicine for the detection of small quantities of an antibody or antigen in a fluid test sample. Some advantages of these assays are that the procedures...
