- Development of an immunofiltration-based antigen-detection assay for rapid diagnosis of Ebola virus infectionAndreas Lucht
Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology, Munich, Germany
J Infect Dis 196:S184-92. 2007..The assay represents a first-generation rapid field test for the detection of EBOV antigen that can be performed in 30 min without electrical power or expensive or sensitive equipment...
- Development, characterization and use of monoclonal VP40-antibodies for the detection of Ebola virusAndreas Lucht
Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology, Neuherbergstrasse 11, D 80937 Munich, Germany
J Virol Methods 111:21-8. 2003..The established enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay therefore has the ability to become a very useful tool for obtaining an accurate diagnosis in the field, limiting the risk of laboratory infections...
- Production of monoclonal antibodies and development of an antigen capture ELISA directed against the envelope glycoprotein GP of Ebola virusAndreas Lucht
Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology, Neuherbergstrasse 11, 80937 Munich, Germany
Med Microbiol Immunol 193:181-7. 2004..Since the ELISA is able to detect even SDS-inactivated EBOV in spiked human sera, it could complement the existing diagnostic tools in the field and in routine laboratories where high containment facilities are not available...
