A stable antibody-sensitized erythrocyte diagnostic preparation for detection of rhinovirus type 17 and its antibody

A diagnostic preparation was obtained by sensitization of formalinized sheep erythrocytes with antibody to rhinovirus type 17. This preparation was agglutinated in the presence of relatively high concentrations of type 17 but not other types of rhinovirus. It could also be used for detection of antibody to rhinovirus type 17 in the antigen neutralization test, the antibody levels determined in this way being similar to those found by conventional virus neutralization tests in cell cultures.
