         Serological Tests: Summary
• Precipitation: Soluble antigens
• Agglutination: Particulate antigens
• Hemagglutination: Agglutination of RBCs
• Neutralization (inhibition): Inactivates toxin or virus
• Fluorescent-antibody technique: Antibodies linked to
  fluorescent dye
• Complement fixation: RBCs are indicator
• ELISA: Enzyme linked to antibody amplifies results for
  easier visibility and more sensitivity.
