hemolytic unit

he·mol·y·sin u·nit

, hemolytic unit
the smallest quantity (highest dilution) of inactivated immune serum (hemolysin) that will sensitize the standard suspension of erythrocytes so that the standard complement will cause complete hemolysis.
Synonym(s): amboceptor unit

The MeOH and 1:1 DCM: MeOH, extracts on human AB blood group and cow blood showed maximum of 0.16 specific Hemolytic Unit (HU) and minimum of 0.01 specific Hemolytic Unit was recorded in goat blood from 1:1 DCM: MeOH extract (Fig.
Hemolytic activity of extracts the MeOH and 1:1 MeOH: DCM extracts on human AB blood group and cow blood showed maximum of 0.16 specific Hemolytic Unit (HU), followed by 0.08 HU observed in MeOH extracts on chicken, cow, human A & B erythrocytes.
The three hemolytic units had a mean (SD) HBDH concentration of 2585 (1797) U/L (1496-4660 U/L) with no significant difference after heating to 35[degrees]C [2160 (1107) U/L; 1270-3400 U/L].
In the three hemolytic units, 0.1 (0.04)% of the events were in R2 (minimum-maximum, 0.11-0.19%).
