Abstract (English):
Modern serological and immunological tests are used for screening studies and prediction of the immune response, as well as for the diagnosis of viral diseases of different sensitivity. These methods play an important role in epidemiology and vaccine development, and also allow determining the number and diversity of antibodies. The most popular methods of enzyme immunoassay (ELISA), immunochromatographic and immunochemiluminescent assays in medical practice were identified. However, they are used to a limited extent to determine the status of infection (in combination with molecular genetic analyses), serological prevalence and the status of immune protection of medical workers.
