Simply, it denotes precipitation in gel. It refers to any of the several techniques for obtaining a precipitate between an antibody and its specific antigen. Objectives of Radial Immunodiffusion The Mancini immunodiffusion test may be carried out with one or more of the following objectives: To detect antigen-antibody complexes.
Describe the circumstances under which antigen-antibody complexes precipitate out. Determine relative concentration of antigens. In the test, antibody is incorporated into agar and poured into a glass plate to form a uniform layer. Circular wells are cut into the agar and antigen is introduced into the wells. Specific antigens to the impregnated antibodies diffuse through the agar in all directions from the well and react with the antibody present forming visible precipitate or a precipitin ring.
Ring shaped bands of precipitates from concentrically around the well indicating reaction. Carefully circular wells are cut and removed from the plates. As the antigen diffuses radially, a ring of precipitate will form in the area of optimal antigen — antibody concentration. The ring diameters are measured and noted. A standard curve is prepared using the ring diameters of the standards versus their concentrations.
This curve is then used to determine the concentration of the control and unknown samples. Absence of precipitin ring suggest absence of reaction. The greater the amount of antigen in the well, the farther the ring will form from the well.
Estimation of the immunoglobulin classes in sera. Estimation of IgG, IgM antibodies in sera to influenza viruses. Other applications include: To determine relative concentrations of antibodies in serum. Estimate serum transferrin and alpha-feroprotein. To compare properties of two different antigens.
The reaction is in the form of bands of precipitation and can be stained for better viewing as well as preservation. If a large number of antigens are present, each antigen-antibody reaction will give rise to a separate line of precipitation. This technique also indicates identity, cross reaction and non identity between different antigens. Single diffusion menthod of precipitation is considered relatively wasteful than other methods. The test has been recently replaced by more sensitive and automated methods, such as nephelometry and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays.
