FERREIRA, Cláudio Santos and CARVALHO, Maria Esther de. Indirect immunofluorescence tests: some modifications of their technique. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1973, vol.7, n.3, pp.303-306. ISSN 1518-8787. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101973000300013.
Some simplifications intended for routine operations included immunofluorescence tests are proposed. The elution of dried blood samples is performed on test plates (water-color mixing plates, with a lid) instead of in test tubes. Nickel-chromium wire loops are substituted for capillary pipettes in transferring eluate samples to microscope slides. A rapid and efficient washing technique is proposed.
