Unlabeled Antibody Assays Depending on the assay, the antibody may be unlabeled or labeled with a fluorescent molecule, a radioisotope, an enzyme, or biotin. In assays using unlabeled antibody, a specific antibody–antigen reaction is detected by a resultant biological effect. Examples of assays that use unlabeled antibodies are hemagglutination inhibition (HI), complement fixation, and neutralization. HI is the standard test for strain typing of influenza isolates but otherwise now has little use in virus identification.

No less of an achievement was the invention of the PCR method by Mullis in 1983. Since the initial description of his method, PCR methods have become the standard against which newer procedures are compared. Traditional PCR The PCR method is used for the specific amplification of a targeted DNA or RNA sequence. For DNA targets, the double-stranded DNA is rendered single stranded by denaturing with heating to 95°C for 2–10 minutes. The reaction vessel is rapidly cooled to between 55 and 65°C in the presence of short (15–20 bases) complementary oligonucleotides (primers), which bracket the targeted DNA to be amplified.

Skin and mucous membrane lesions are scraped vigorously, and the cells are deposited on the slide, air dried, and fixed. The slide is than stained with specific MAbs and observed for specific viral staining. Fluorescent Labeled Antibodies Commercially available FITC-labeled antibodies for direct detection of herpes I and II viruses, VZV, influenza A and B, RSV, adenoviruses, and others are available. Direct immunofluorescence assays (DFAs) is less sensitive for agents that grow well in culture, such as for herpes or influenza, and more sensitive for other viruses that do not grow as well, such as RSV (8).
