Abstract

Rubella antibody (IgG) has been measured in females reporting for antenatal screening using single radial haemolysis (SRH) and time-resolved fluorescence immunoassay (TRFIA). We have shown TRFIA to be a simple, specific, highly sensitive, quantitative assay for rubella IgG with a lower limit of detection of 0.2IU/ml. Out of 506 sera tested by SRH, 18 (3.6%) had low levels of antibody (
