Scope note: Pruebas serológicas que se basan en la inactivación del complemento por el complejo antígeno-anticuerpo (etapa 1). La unión del complemento libre puede confirmarse por la adición de un segundo sistema antígeno-anticuerpo como el de hematíes y un anticuerpo apropiado a los hematíes (hemolisina) que requiere del complemento para su realización (etapa 2). La ausencia de lisis de los hematíes indica que en la etapa 1 se ha producido una reacción antígeno-anticuerpo específica. Si hay lisis es porque hay complemento libre lo que indica que no ha ocurrido la reacción antígeno-anticuerpo en la etapa 1.

Scope note: Serologic tests based on inactivation of complement by the antigen-antibody complex (stage 1). Binding of free complement can be visualized by addition of a second antigen-antibody system such as red cells and appropriate red cell antibody (hemolysin) requiring complement for its completion (stage 2). Failure of the red cells to lyse indicates that a specific antigen-antibody reaction has taken place in stage 1. If red cells lyse, free complement is present indicating no antigen-antibody reaction occurred in stage 1.
