A rapid, simple and reproducible microneutralization test for human cytomegalovirus is described. The results can be read in 1-2 days and the neutralization titer detected in human and guinea pig sera and in monoclonal antibody-containing supernatants is consistent with that derived by the plaque-reduction neutralization test.
