A polystyrene solid phase is coated with antibodies directed against bovine-rotavirus antigens. Upon addition of a faecal extract, rotavirus antigens (if present) will be trapped by specific antibodies covalently linked to the enzyme peroxidase (conjugate). The bound conjugate is visualized through addition of a chromogenic substrate. Specificity of the reaction is checked by blocking the conjugate reaction with a specific anti-rotavirus serum.
