Abstract


Citrus Psorosis Virus (CPsV) can be detected by ELISA, but current protocols use polyclonal antisera. The availability of these antisera is limited, and new production is hampered by difficulties met with purification of the virus. Several specific monoclonal antibodies were recently produced, and we report how those have been successfully utilized for the development of an all-monoclonal antibody-based ELISA kit.
