 [im″u-no-ad-sor´bent]
a preparation of antigen attached to a solid support or antigen in an insoluble form, which adsorbs homologous antibodies from a mixture of immunoglobulins.

im·mu·no·sor·bent

(im'yū-nō-sōr'bent),
An antibody (or antigen) used to remove specific antigen (or antibody) from solution or suspension; commonly used with reference to antibody bound to a particulate substance such as a dextran polymer used to remove soluble antigen (for example, insulin) from solution.

immunosorbent

/im·mu·no·sor·bent/ (-sor´bent) an insoluble support for antigen or antibody used to absorb homologous antibodies or antigens, respectively, from a mixture; the antibodies or antigens so removed may then be eluted in pure form.

immunosorbent

[-sôr′bənt]
a substance containing attached antigens used to remove homologous antibodies from a solution. See also enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

immunosorbent

the binding of antigen or antibody to a solid support, usually a plastic surface at the bottom of a well in a microtiter plate or a latex particle. See also elisa.
