[hē′madsôrp′shən, hem′-]
Etymology: Gk, haima, blood; L, ad to, sorbere, to swallow
the adherence of red blood cells to other cells or surfaces; a process in which a substance or an agent, such as certain viruses and bacilli, adheres to the surface of an erythrocyte. The process occurs naturally, or it may be induced for laboratory identification of bacteriological specimens.

hem·ad·sorp·tion

(hēm'ad-sōrp'shŭn)
A phenomenon manifested by an agent or substance adhering to or being adsorbed on the surface of a red blood cell.
Synonym(s): haemadsorption.

hemadsorption

the adherence of red cells to other cells, particles or surfaces. Hemadsorption and hemadsorption inhibition are used for the assay of some viruses and their specific antibodies, e.g. paramyxovirus.

ASFV isolates for which the hemadsorption phenomenon was inhibited by serum belonging to the same group within serogroups 1-8 were clustered into a homologous serogroup.
Serogroups are defined on the basis of results of hemadsorption inhibition assay (HAI) with reference serum (serogroups 1-8).
The hemadsorption activity of MuV variants was determined in infected cell cultures at 4[degrees]C.
We used hemadsorption assays to investigate the direct interaction of viruses with sialic acids.
The hemadsorption test result was positive for all isolates with subsequent confirmation by immunofluorescence staining.
If no effect was observed, the HeLa tubes were passaged blind at weekly intervals, and monkey kidney tissue cultures were tested for hemadsorption with guinea pig erythrocytes.
cell culture tests for the presence of certain cytocidal viruses (by inoculation of and blind passage in Vero, MRC-5, HeLa, RK, and A9 cells with observations for cytopathology and tests for hemadsorption and hemagglutination at the end of the culture period), and animal inoculation tests for certain viruses (suckling and adult mice, guinea pigs, and embryonated hen eggs).
In addition, a hemadsorption test was performed for LLC-MK2 and MDCK monolayers.
After 14 days of incubation, a hemadsorption test for LLC-MK2 and MDCK monolayers was performed.
