ELISA for the serology of FIP virus.
View PDF Version
An enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) virus serology is described. The assay is analogous to a previously developed indirect heterologous immunofluorescence test (IFT) in which transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) viral antigen was used. Comparative testing of selected feline sera in both assays resulted in corresponding titers, which justifies the conclusion that the ELISA is a reliable test for the serology of FIP virus.
