Virological Diagnosis and Infections in Cells and Tissues

  • Monto Ho


In this section we discuss practical approaches to the virological diagnosis of CMV, that is, the demonstration of CMV in clinical samples by isolation of the virus or demonstration of its nucleic acid or antigens in tissues and cells. Practical knowledge is emphasized. The scientific background of this material is found in other sections, especially from Chapters 2 to 4. Technical details are not presented fully but may be found in other texts (Reynolds et al., 1979b).
