Dr. Tobias Polifke & Dr. Peter Rauch, CANDOR Bioscience GmbH, Wangen, Germany

Using ELISAs as an example, we discuss the technical requirements for the development of truly dependable immunological testing methods, since the cross-reactivities debated by many virologists constitute only a small fraction of the actual challenges.
