gel diffusion precipitin tests in one dimension

(redirected from single immunodiffusion)

gel dif·fu·sion pre·cip·i·tin tests in one di·men·sion

precipitin tests in which antigen solution and antibody incorporated in agar are layered in tubes, permitting effective diffusion in the vertical dimension; the antibody-containing agar may be overlaid directly with antigen solution (single [gel] diffusion in one dimension).

It is unclear in the discussion of 'the gel method' (Eisele 1994: 5) exactly which of several methods for detecting Ag/Ab reactions in gel is meant - whether single immunodiffusion or Oudin, double-diffusion or Ouchterlony, rocket electrophoresis, crossed-electrophoresis, immuno-electrophoresis or tandem crossed immuno-electrophoresis (Johnstone & Thorpe 1982).
