Dr. Larry Lutwick answered

Specializes in Infectious Disease

Antibody tests: Latex beads are coated with an antigen. You you have antibodies against that antigen, your serum may agglutinate the beads. A titer can be determined by diluting the serum. Sometimes, a high titer may not agglutinate until the serum is diluted (prozone effect).
