|Contribution||Reported immunological lysis of erythrocytes.|
|Notes||Bordet reported that if red blood cells of, say, a sheep, are injected into another animal, say, a rabbit, the serum of the rabbit will cause lysis of sheep red blood cells in vitro. While this does not involve microbes, the discovery provided important practical and theoretical tools for serodiagnosis. See 1900. Bibel gives an English translation of the paper.|
