The polyethylene glycol (PEG) antiglobulin test (AGT) was evaluated by testing antibodies in the sera of 362 different patients and by screening of 4,685 random patient sera with both the PEG AGT and the albumin AGT. Agglutination in the PEG method was stronger in 254 (70.2%), identical in 99 (27.3%) and weaker in 9 (2.5%) of the 363 sera. Mean end-point… CONTINUE READING
