An Approach to Automated Cytotoxicity Testing by Means of Digital Image Processing
HLA antigens exist on the surface of human lymphocytes and have been widely investigated as histocompatibility antigens mainly in connection with kidney transplantation. In addition to this, it has recently been found that there are associations between certain types of HLA antigens and various diseases. The microdroplet lymphocytotoxicity test is universally accepted as the standard method for HLA antigen determination (Terasaki et al., 1978).
