Abstract

Sensitivity in the microagglutination (MA) test of artificial (prepared by potassium periodate treatment) phase II Coxiella burnetii antigens depended on the C. burnetii strain used and the number of its chick embryo yolk sac passages.

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.
