Common Whatman filter paper grade 1 and nitrocellulose membrane were compared for their sensitivity in a dot-immunobinding assay for detection of serum antibody titers to Arkansas avian infectious bronchitis virus (AIBV). For a blue to purple color detection, serum antibodies were bound to AIBV antigen adsorbed on the filter-paper discs or nitrocellulose membrane. Rabbit anti-chicken IgG horseradish-peroxidase (HRP) conjugate and hydrogen peroxide with 4-chloro-1-naphthol (HRP-color development reagent) were applied. The study indicates that very small amounts of antigen/antisera are needed for the dot-immunobinding assay. The test is sensitive, economical, and easy to run and can be completed within 6-8 hours.
