[Capturing-ELISA for the detection of anti-HCMV-IgM antibody in serum].Zhonghua Shi Yan He Lin Chuang Bing Du Xue Za Zhi. 2003 Sep; 17(3):285-6.ZS
To develop a capturing-ELISA for the detection of anti-HCMV-IgM antibody in serum.
The anti-HCMV-IgM antibody was detected in 68 patients with HCMV infection by the capturing-ELISA, and the results were compared with those of indirect ELISA.
The specificity and sensitivity of the capturing-ELISA were shown to be significantly higher than those of indirect ELISA, and its results were not affected by RF factor.
The capturing ELISA is specific, sensitive, convenient and reliable method which may be feasible for clinical use.
