Abstract

We describe a new simplified solid phase immunoassay for the detection of anti-HIV antibodies. The results obtained analyzing a panel of sera from subjects showing a different pattern of reactivity on enzyme immunoassays and on Western blot demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity. The test does not require experienced laboratory staff nor the use of costly laboratory instruments.
