Pandys reaction

Pandy's reaction

A test to determine the presence of proteins (chiefly globulins) in the spinal fluid, by adding one drop of spinal fluid to 1 ml of solution (e.g., carbolic acid crystals in distilled water, cresol, or pyrogallic acid); the reaction varies from a faint turbidity to a dense milky precipitate according to the degree of protein content.

Synonym: Pandy's test.
