antigen capture assay

antigen capture assay
a method for identifying minute quantities of antigen in solution: large quantities of antibody against the desired antigen are fixed to a solid support matrix, over which the solution is passed. The antigen is retained by the matrix and can be identified by reaction with labeled antibody.
