In regards to a known diagnostic antibody specific to the polioma virus
I don't believe one exist and I would imagine it would be an ASR if so,
in addition I know that there has been some research on polioma and they
made up their own poly-clonal cocktail. I am sure you already know this
but, your first step would be doing a FISH for renal carcinoma to rule
that out-I am sure you do.  I am VERY familiar with the Ventana XT
platform and know that if you could find a concentrate somewhere it
could work-have you tried zymed?  I will try to look through some
literature tonight see what I can find.  Good luck!
