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.
