The efficacy of ELISA-based or microsphere immunoassays for detecting WNV antibodies has been well documented and provided results confirmed by PRNT (1214,17,18).
Samples were separated and serum was stored at -20[degrees]C until shipment to the Animal Health Diagnostic Laboratory and subsequent PRNT.
In the United States, testing of samples by hemagglutination inhibition (HAI), ELISA, and/or PRNT is commonly undertaken by state reference laboratories or by the CDC.
Com relacao a granulometria, corroborando Raij (1991), foram constatados na camada superficial do solo valores de pH mais elevados nos tratamentos utilizando calcario com granulometria mais fina (PRNT de 95%) do que com calcario com PRNT de 56% aos 24 meses apos a aplicacao do calcario, o mesmo foi observado em relacao as doses (Tabelas 2 e 3).
While being a valuable tool in the diagnosis of WNV infection and being the most specific of any of the flavivirus serological assays, PRNT exhibits a number of limitations, which restrict the test's capacity to be exploited for high-volume measurement of antibody against WNV.
However, heterologous viral (non-Heartland viral) plaques were noted in PRNT cell culture wells, which indicated the presence of another virus (Figure 1).
Focus' reference laboratory performs WNV serology and PCR, as well as PRNT (plaque reduction neutralization test) to confirm specific antibodies detected for WNV versus St.
IgM-positive samples were tested for IgG by ELISA and/or confirmatory PRNT, depending on the volume of sample available.

A suspected yellow fever case was ruled out if ELISA or PRNT results were negative.
