Abstract : Protein polycondensates were prepared from rabbit anti-vaccinia gamma globulin by means of fluoro-borate complex of bis-diasonium from benzidien. The resulting suspensions of immonosorbents were capable of adsorbing vaccinia virus on their surfaces. The virus was detected as elementary bodies or aggregates thereof by the fluorescent antibody technique. The proposed method of virus detection on sorbents may have practical application since it may be used for concentration of virus from large volumes of diluted virus-containing fluids. (Author)
