Correlation of circulating capsular polysaccharide with bacteremia in pneumococcal pneumonia. Counter-current immunoelectrophoresis works with all the 33 pneumococcal antigens tested except type The effect is rapid migration of the antibody and antigen out of their respective wells towards one another to form a line of precipitation, or a precipitin line, indicating binding.

Better precipitin lines are obtained when the gel-support is acid pH than when it is alkaline pH The chemotherapy of bacterial respiratory infections. Counterimmunoelectrophoresis is a laboratory technique used to evaluate the binding of an antibody to its antigenit is similar to immunodiffusionbut with the addition of an applied electrical field across the diffusion medium, usually an agar or polyacrylamide gel.

Medical tests used in immunology and for inflammation CPT — The clinical importance of these findings is still being studied but our experience has shown that patients with chest infections should have effective antipneumococcal antibiotics as part of their regimen currrent that the laboratory diagnosis may be made quickly and accurately by counter-current immunoelectrophoresis.
