In Vivo Assays

In vivo detection is the inoculation of virus-sensitive animals in order to detect adventitous viruses. Four species are generally used, as they make it possible to screen for a wide range of viruses:

Embryonated eggs Suckling mice
Arboviruses Herpes simplex type 1 Arboviruses B Virus
Herpes simplex type 2 Coxsackie A Virus
Influenza Coxsackie B Virus
Mumps Newcastle disease Foot and mouth disease virus
