Hybridoma cell agglutination as a novel test to detect circulating antigen of Schistosoma japonicum.


We developed a serodiagnostic test which is based on the agglutination of hybridoma cells. In the presence of specific antigen, agglutination of the fixed and stained cells occurs and can be visualized in analogy to traditional erythrocyte agglutination. The procedures were developed with a murine cell line producing a monoclonal antibody against a… (More)
