Abstract:

Described is a new method for the determination of indirect hemagglutination according to Boyden. In principle, the method consists in measuring the extent of coating B formed on an inclined surface, thus B giving a measure of aggregation hemagglutination. Coating is intensified by increasing antibody concentration. Two immunological systems, tetanus toxoid-antitoxin and human serumalbumin-antihuman serumalbumin, have been chosen to demonstrate the high sensitivity, exactness, and good reproducibility of this method.
