4164 PHAGO-TEST 2×5 test
Evaluation of the phagocytic function of granulocytes. Whole blood with heparin is incubated in the presence of zimosan and cytochrome c. Zimosan is opsonized by the plasma fraction of blood and is phagocytised by granulocytes resulting in superoxide O formation 2 . The superoxide ion thus developed reacts with cytochrome c, reducing it. After centrifugation, the metric color is measured in the supernatant cytochrome c reduced: its concentration is proportional to the phagocytic function.
