hemolytic plaque assay
A hemolytic plaque assay is a lab technique used to show that certain antibodies are secreted by antibody-making cells when these cells are mixed with red blood cells. The mixture is spread onto a plate of agar; if a plaque appears, it means that the red blood cells have been destroyed (by hemolysis) by the antibodies.
