Abstract

A modified complement fixation test and a counter-immuno-electrophoresis on cellulose acetate were compared to electron microscopy, in detecting Rotavirus from stool specimens. Out of 75 samples from patients with acute gastroenteritis, 40 per cent yielded positive results. The main advantages of the above two methods in routine diagnosis are discussed.
