[The use of high-capacity immunoplates in determining antibodies to the human immunodeficiency virus]


Zh Mikrobiol Epidemiol Immunobiol. 1997 Jan-Feb;(1):18-22. Unique

The action of gas plasma on the sorption characteristics of polystyrene immunoplates is described. The treatment of immunoplates with gas plasma has proved to be a highly effective method for increasing their adsorption capacity and the sensitivity of immunoassay in the determination of antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1). This method makes it possible to increase the sensitivity of solid-phase immunoassay for the determination of a number of viral infections.
