Abstract

Summary

An indirect sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed to detect the baculovirus of in purified virus preparations and in extracts of larvae and adults collected in the field in Tonga. A 20 ng amount of purified virus was detected unequivocally but precise quantitative determinations of virus in insect extracts proved difficult because virus in solutions containing host protein gave lower absorbance values than a comparable purified virus standard. The implications for use of ELISA in ecological studies are discussed together with the choice of appropriate standards.
