Aiming to determine if antigen-antibody complex formation - antigen blocking - interfered with detection of the heartworm antigen in cats using commercial assays, the study evaluated serum samples from six domestic cats confirmed to be infected with a low number of heartworms.
The binding of the antigen-antibody complex was visualized by the scientists through a colorimetric reaction that involved a goat anti-rabbit immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody, labeled with alkaline phosphatase, and the substrate p-nitrophenyl phosphate.
Today, most immunoassays work on the basic principles of the antigen-antibody complex.
