Comparative evaluations of immune status was demonstrated for rubella immune status. ELISA and HI demonstrated a 92.6% agreement and were compared in an attempt to define the quantitative usefulness of comparisons of single sera for determining immune status. Apparently, there is a relative lack of correlation between single ELISA and HI quantitative values. ELISA was an acceptable alternative to HI for the determination of immune status to rubella virus.
