When contrasting antigens react with antibodies, does agglutination occurs?
Thanks for the question. Agglutination occurs when an anti-body links together to an antigen. This pair then binds other anti-bodies and antigens. This proecess repeats until the macromolecule becomes so large that it precipitates.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have more questions.
