Determination of Total and Merecaptothanol-Resistant Antibody in the Same Serum Sample

Clin Exp Immunol. 1970 Feb;6(2):313-6.


A method to determine the titre of total and mercaptoethanol-resistant antibody with a single serum dilution is described. This technique is particularly useful when experiments require multiple bleedings from small animals, as it reduces their blood loss by half.
