2) The serologic reactivities of the MAbs used in these assays are shown in Table 1. (3) Occasionally, high backgrounds with uninfected control mosquitoes may be observed. In this case the test should be repeated. (4) For this and all other ELISA assays, MAb reagents are in the form of mouse-ascitic fluids. MAb-enzyme conjugates are commercial preparations using ascitic fluids supplied by our laboratory (Jackson Immunochemicals, West Grove, PA). Reagent potency may vary depending upon preparations and should be independently determined before use.

Also prepare at least six independent pools of normal, noninfected mosquitoes to serve as ELISA-negative antigens. 25 ml aliquot (including the pellet). Sonicate each sample in a biosafety cabinet using a microprobe at 100 W for 10 s. Centrifuge in a microfuge at 12–14,000 rpm for 2 min. Transfer the supernatant to new vial. Immediately before ELISA testing, add 10 ml lysis buffer per 100 ml mosquito pool sample. Addition of the lysis buffer frees virus antigens from larger particles. Incubate for 15 min at room temperature.
