Impact of Sample Type on Rapid Detection of Influenza Virus A by Cytospin-Enhanced Immunofluorescence and Membrane Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay

By Marie L. Landry, Sandra Cohen and David Ferguson


Cytospin-enhanced direct fluorescent-antibody assay (DFA) detected 49 (92.5%) and rapid membrane enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) detected 40 (75.5%) of 53 influenza virus A-positive samples. All 15 positive nasopharyngeal aspirates from children were detected by both tests. In contrast, 34 of 38 (89.5%) positive swabs from adults were detected by DFA, but only 25 (66%) were detected by ELISA
