  • methods
  • Although there have been methods for determining the presence of antigenically active macromolecules such as intact viruses, virus capsids, subunits, bacteria, membranes, cell walls, hormones, etc., there has been a lack of a simple yet sensitive test method and apparatus for determining the presence of these materials.
