Radial immunodiffusion RID or Mancini method, Mancini immunodiffusion or single radial immunodiffusion assay, is an immunodiffusion technique used in immunology to determine the quantity or concentration of an antigen in a sample. A solution containing antibody is added to a heated medium such as agar or agarose dissolved in buffered normal saline. The molten medium is then poured onto a microscope slide or into an open container, such as a Petri dishand allowed to cool and form a gel.

The antigen diffuses radially into the medium, forming a circle of precipitin that marks the boundary between the antibody and the antigen. Antigen-antibody complexes are small and soluble when in antigen excess. Therefore, precipitation near the center of the circle is usually less immunochemicwl than it is near the circle’s outer edge, where antigen is less concentrated.


Expansion of the circle reaches an end point and stops when free antigen is depleted and when antigen and antibody reach equivalence. For most antigens, the area and the square of the diameter of the circle at the circle’s end point are directly proportional to the quantity of antigen immunodifgusion are inversely proportional to the concentration of antibody.

Radial immunodiffusion – Wikipedia

Circles that small quantities of pf create reach their end points before circles that large quantities create. While circles are still quantitationn, a graph that compares the quantities or concentrations of the antigen on a logarithmic scale with the diameters or areas of the circles on a linear scale may be a straight line kinetic method.

The quantity and concentration of insoluble antigen-antibody complexes at the outer edge of the circle increase with time.

Measurements of large circles are more accurate than are those of small quzntitation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. American Association for Clinical Chemistry. Archived at the Wayback Machine. Laboratory Techniques; Chapter Delmar Division of Thomson Learning.
