    The great convenience of a method using a suspension of antibody-coated latex particles for the titration of fibrinogen-related antigens over the tanned red cell haemaglutination immunoassay (TRCHII test) of Merskey, Lalezari, and Johnson (1969) has been demonstrated. The usefulness of Ca-Ancrod for the defibrination of heparinized plasma is presented here.
