Abstract

SUMMARY

An immunoperoxidase-based quantitative assay has been developed for infectious units of nuclear polyhedrosis virus infecting TN-368 cells. Major benefits of this assay over existing quantitative assays for baculoviruses are that it is not dependent upon polyhedra production, it is clear-cut and easy to score, and results are obtained within 24 h.
