Antigen-Antibody Testing: A Visual Simulation or Virtual Reality

This exercise demonstrates the biological phenomenon of the formation of a precipitate when an antigen reacts with an antibody. The exercise can be used to illustrate the specificity of antigen-antibody reactions, showing that a precipitation reaction only occurs when an antibody reacts with the antigen that was used to induce the formation of the antibody. The exercise is also a general demonstration of diffusion.
