Re: What does hemagglutination look like?

Thank you Doctor Stein. The picture is a real help. The only problem is that a toxin in my sample causes the blood cells to burst. That is why I must use fixed blood. But thank you for your suggestion and it is very useful to see what agglutination looks like. Thank you!

Yes, hemagglutination is clumped cells, based on antigen:antibody reaction, in this case particle antigen on the surface of RBC and antibody in the serum. If you want to see the nice agglutination in fresh blood (not fixed blood), ...

Antiserra+blood product's chemistry

Darby is correct. Actually Abu does NOT know anything about the principle as he said, if he understands, he wouldn't answer that way. Hemagglutination is not something like CO2 + H2O ---> H2CO3. It's immunological process and by understanding the principle we will get the answer ;)
