Evaluation of ELISA and electron microscopy for the detection of coronavirus and rotavirus in bovine faeces



Evaluation of ELISA and electron microscopy for the detection of coronavirus and rotavirus in bovine faeces



Veterinary Record 114(16): 397-401



Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was compared with electron microscopy in the examination of faeces from experimental calves and showed 100% agreement in the detection of 19 bovine coronavirus and 15 bovine rotavirus electron microscope positive samples. In a limited field survey of calf diarrhoea, 75 selected faecal samples were examined independently by ELISA and electron microscopy and the agreement between the two tests was 95% for coronavirus and 84% for rotavirus.
