The Quantitative Precipitin Technique is a simple technique that is routinely used in the analysis of antibody and antigen interactions and for the estimation of the antibody or antigen content in a sample. The technique is based on the interaction of antibody and antigen to form a large protein complex that in certain solutions (buffer) will result in precipitation.
Students undertake a simple experiment to determine the zone of equivalence of an antigen and antibody interaction. The kit is provided with a fluorescent labeled protein to make visualization of the results clearer and easier to compare.
Supplied with components needed for hands-on experimentation for six workstations of 4-5 students or 24-30 students. Supplied with Teacher’s Guide and separate Student’s Guides.
