There is a kit put out by Clontech which uses an antibody to titer
baculovirus. I believe it is called BacPak or something like that.

We have used the kit in our lab and found that, though it was much faster
than traditional methods, it was not as precise as plaque assays. Also, it
was, relatively speaking, extremely expensive considering that you couldn't
perform that many assays per kit.

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with or grudge against Clontech or any
other company. I just used the kit and am offering a review.
