In view of serological sensitivity, specificity and simple procedure of reaction pattern the modified mixed cell agglutination reaction (Davidsohn's MCAR) proved to be a very useful test for typing ABO isoantigens in forensic medicine. Its sensitivity surpasses in some cases, where very small amounts of isoantigens have to be detected, that of the absorption-elution reaction several thousand times. The capacity to demonstrate the localization of antigens seems to be more reliable than the… CONTINUE READING
