Accuracy of virus counting methods
Posted 12 May 2009 - 10:35 AM
Just how accurate are methods for enumerating viruses or getting estimates of viral titre?
For instance, just how accurate are plaque assays or TCID50 methods?
I've heard they are frequently no better than estimating to within a log !!!
Can this be true!!!!

I also think methods can vary depending on the virus type. for example HA assay only applies to certain viruses like Influenza and NDV.
