The first enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for a microsporidian is described. The assay detects as little as 2 ng of spore homogenate protein and as few as 2000 intact spores. Several timesaving and reagent-conserving modifications of traditional ELISA protocols are employed. Individuals of 103 taxa of aquatic animals were surveyed as possible intermediate hosts for Amblyospora. No successful transmissions were achieved with any of these animals.Author
