A rapid fluorescent focus-inhibition test for determining dengue neutralizing antibody and for identifying prototype dengue viruses.
Can J Microbiol. 1978 Dec; 24(12):1553-6.CJ

Abstract

Neutralizing antibody to dengue virus in human and animal sera was assayed by the rapid fluorescent focus-inhibition test (RFFIT). Neutralizing-antibody titers could be detected after only 24 h compared to 5--6 days required by the plaque-reduction test. The RFFIT is more definitive than the conventional complement fixation (CF) or hemagglutination-inhibition (HI) test in identifying prototype dengue viruses, is reproducible, and is applicable to the routine detection of neutralizing antibodies to dengue viruses.
