A combined enzyme immunoassay using nitrocellulose membrane as solid support is described for the detection of rotavirus and adenovirus in faeces from children with gastroenteritis. Its sensitivity and specificity are comparable to those of a previously described assay performed on plastic microplates (Pereira et al. (1985) J. Virol. Methods 10, 21-28). The introduction of nitrocellulose membrane as support for the immune reactions greatly simplifies the multiple washing steps and precludes the need for disposable plastic plates. © 1987.
