ELISA stands for Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay. AIDS, Hepatitis, Thyroid disorder and Rubella virus are some of the diseases detected using ELISA. It is a technique of detecting very small amount of protein -antibody or antigen with the help of the enzyme peroxidase or alkaline phosphatase and stain producing substrate like 5-aminosalicylic acid or orthophenylenediamine.
