No agglutination suggested the presence of antigen in saliva, while agglutination suggested the absence of antigens in the saliva.
Antigen Production: The antigen was prepared from Salmonella gallinarum colonies which showed agglutination with specific sera(Charles River, USA) but didn't agglutinate with acriflavin(Sigma, Aldrich), normal saline or negative control sera The antigen was prepared using confirmed isolates of S.
The procedure involves incubating the patient's RBCs with the AHG reagent, before centrifuging the RBC suspension to produce a pellet or dry cell button that is examined for agglutination. A positive DAT means that the patient's RBCs are coated with antibodies, while a negative DAT indicates that there are no detectable antibodies attached to the patient's RBCs.

Patients with AIHA and warm RBC autoantibodies do not have the spontaneous agglutination of RBCs but can still have significant hemolysis as the RBCs coated with autoantibodies are removed by the reticuloendothelial system, which also presents with signs and symptoms of anemia and hemolysis.

When reading the tubes for agglutination, the first tubes containing the most serum (antibody) may appear to be weaker or even negative compared to later tubes that contain smaller amounts of serum (anti-body).
