Abstract

The H antigens of 469 strains of Serratia marcescens have been studied. A specific immobilization test in soft agar with antiserum is described. Being more quickly carried out than tube agglutination, it has the same specificity. The most frequently identified H antigen is H:12. Six new H antigens (H:14 to H:19) have been individualized, one of them--H:17--frequently occurring in strains isolated in France.

Antibodies: Agglutination

Antibody-mediated agglutination is the clumping of cells in the presence of antibody, which binds multiple cells together. This enhances the clearance of pathogens. Find the latest research on antibody-mediated agglutination here.
