Comparison of radial haemolysis with haemagglutination inhibition in estimating rubella antibody.
  1. P N Appleton,
  2. A D Macrae


    Radial haemolysis (RH) for assaying rubella antibody was studied in parallel tests with haemagglutination-inhibition (HAI) on 1102 sera from adult women. Simple to perform and economical in reagents, the RH test is as sensitive as the HAI test and is a useful method of screening antenatal and other sera for rubella immunity. It detects IgG but not IgM antibody.
