Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The sensitivity of antibody screening carried out by reacting a serum with random test cells depends on the probability of a given antigen being present in the cell panel. This probability (p) is defined by the formula p = 1-(1-f)(n) where f is the antigen phenotype frequency and n the number of reacted random cells.
