Table 2 Correlation between the lesion diameters of the fruit samples, the amount of B. cinerea antigen determinated by the ELISA developed and the DNA of B. cinerea quantified from infected fruit extracts samples obtained at 4, 7, and 10 days of incubation (25°C), respectively.

From: Development of an indirect competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay applied to the Botrytis cinerea quantification in tissues of postharvest fruits
