Overview

There are no recommendations for screening for rabies, although the use of enzyme immunoassays for the rapid diagnosis of rabies is currently under investigation.

Screening

There is insufficient evidence to recommend routine screening for rabies. Enzyme immunoassay (EIA) is currently under investigation as a convenient test for screening hybridoma supernatants because nanogram amounts of antibody can be detected and up to 100 samples can be tested at the same time.[1]
