MLB 2 #805205


Suspension medium for erythrocytes.

MLB 2 is a modified LISS solution.

In 1964, Mollison and Polley discovered that the antigen/antibody reaction in blood group serological tests is significantly accelerated by lowering the ionic strength with a Low Ionic Strength Solution (LISS). In MLB 2 the original formula was modified in such a way that even greater sensitivity is achieved. MLB 2 is a modified LISS solution used as a suspension medium for erythrocytes and helps to shorten the reaction time whilst simultaneously intensifying the reaction. For antigen determinations with Coombs-reactive antisera, MLB 2 can be added to the incubation medium as an additive.
