immunoadsorbent

 [im″u-no-ad-sor´bent]
a preparation of antigen attached to a solid support or antigen in an insoluble form, which adsorbs homologous antibodies from a mixture of immunoglobulins.

im·mu·no·sor·bent

(im'yū-nō-sōr'bent),
An antibody (or antigen) used to remove specific antigen (or antibody) from solution or suspension; commonly used with reference to antibody bound to a particulate substance such as a dextran polymer used to remove soluble antigen (for example, insulin) from solution.

immunosorbent

/im·mu·no·sor·bent/ (-sor´bent) an insoluble support for antigen or antibody used to absorb homologous antibodies or antigens, respectively, from a mixture; the antibodies or antigens so removed may then be eluted in pure form.

immunosorbent

[-sôr′bənt]
a substance containing attached antigens used to remove homologous antibodies from a solution. See also enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

immunosorbent

the binding of antigen or antibody to a solid support, usually a plastic surface at the bottom of a well in a microtiter plate or a latex particle. See also elisa.

Viral pneumonic lesions of both lungs were positive for immunohistochemistry (IHC) with monoclonal antibody specific for the nucleoprotein of influenza A virus (6) and with antigencapturing enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (Directigen Flu A, Becton-Dickinson, Sparks, MD, USA).
These include 1) a complement-fixation test that is relatively insensitive because in 25% of patients complement-fixing antibodies are not detected and in 75% of patients these antibodies appear late after infection; 2) a seroneutralization assay for detection neutralizing antibodies that appear 14-21 days after onset of disease; 3) an immunofluorescence assay that uses CTFV-infected BHK-21 or Vero cells and is an easy and rapid test for detecting anti-CTFV antibodies; and 4) an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgG that appear concurrently or a few days after neutralizing antibodies (peak 30-40 days after infection), However, IgM titers decrease sharply after day 45.
