A method is described which implements the direct comparison of serum samples from different individuals by simultaneous electrophoresis followed by simultaneous diffusion and precipitation by anti-human horse serum. Results have been evaluated, with an arbitrary reference grid, by comparison of the numbers of precipitin bands present in the paired immunoelectrophoretograms Graphic representation of these differences distinguishes serum samples of like from those of unlike origin.
