The McGill Physiology Virtual Lab

Immunology Laboratory


The purpose of this laboratory is to:

  • Demonstrate how the ELISA assay is used to diagnose exposure to a disease by testing for the presence of antibodies to the disease in a sample of simulated serum.

  • determine the hemagglutinating antibody titer of two different sera.

  • demonstrate complement mediated lysis and the sequence of reactions necessary to cause lysis.
