Title: Can nucleic acids be detected by the ELISA format?

I was wondering if ELISA could detect nucleic acids and If so why? and if not, why not?

Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) are usually used for screening of virus and pathogens. This is same as PCR or RNA Testing. The blood samples are primarily used in NAAT. ELISA Assays are primarily used for antibody screening but the accuracy is relatively higher in NAAT.
