A dot immunobinding assay (DIBA) for the detection of densonucleosis virus (DNV) of the silk worm, Bombyx mori was described. The DIBA (10 ng/ml) was similar to enzyme linked immunosolbent assay (ELISA, 6 ng/ml) and bioassay in sensitivity and was 1,800, 1,000, and 50 times more sensitive than gel immunodiffusion, ring test, and latex agglutination, respectively.
