Culture supernatants yield approximately 1 fig antibody per ml. Up to 10 ml ascitic fluid can be produced per mouse containing a few fig of specific antibodies. ) in rats and recently in humans.

G. lymphokines, in vitro immunizations are now possible, leading to totally in vitro antibody production followed by hybridoma induction and selection. However, this last technique requires specific expertise in tissue culture work. 1 Specificity and affinity Antibodies bind specifically to the immunizing antigen. They may also bind to some related antigens. Each epitope can bind 5-12 amino acids from the antibody site or paratope of the specific immunoglobulin. Antigens to antibodies are linked mainly by hydrogen bonds.

Laurell. 1 Immunoassays based on precipitating antigen-antibody systems in liquid The ring test This was the fIrst qualitative test ever developed to detect the antigen-antibody reaction. Still in use it is performed in a glass capillary tube (2 mm internal diameter). A specillc antibody containing serum is pipeted in the bottom layer. The lighter antigen solution is carefully added on the top. Antigens and antibodies diffuse toward each other and when their respective concentrations are close to the 'equivalence point' they react forming a cloudy precipitate.
