Agglutination Tests definition: Tests that are dependent on the clumping of cells, microorganisms, or particles when mixed with specific antiserum. (From Stedman, 26th ed)
agglutination reaction definition: mixing of antibodies with their corresponding antigens on the surface of large, easily sedimented particles such as animal cells, erythrocytes, or bacteria; the antibodies cross-link the particles, forming visible clumps.
Aptitude Tests definition: Primarily non-verbal tests designed to predict an individual's future learning ability or performance.
Audiometry definition: The testing of the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones. The frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
audiometry definition: specific test to measure the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones; frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
Audiometric Test definition: Testing conducted utilizing a manual or microprocessor audiometer to test for hearing loss.
Breath Tests definition: Any tests done on exhaled air.
breath test definition: any test done on exhaled air.
Caloric Tests definition: Elicitation of a rotatory nystagmus by stimulating the semicircular canals with water or air which is above or below body temperature. In warm caloric stimulation a rotatory nystagmus is developed toward the side of the stimulated ear; in cold, away from the stimulated side. Absence of nystagmus indicates the labyrinth is not functioning.
Carcinogenicity Tests definition: Tests to experimentally measure the tumor-producing/cancer cell-producing potency of an agent by administering the agent (e.g., benzanthracenes) and observing the quantity of tumors or the cell transformation developed over a given period of time. The carcinogenicity value is usually measured as milligrams of agent administered per tumor developed. Though this test differs from the DNA-repair and bacterial microsome MUTAGENICITY TESTS, researchers often attempt to correlate the finding of carcinogenicity values and mutagenicity values.

Coombs' Test definition: Hemagglutination test in which Coombs' reagent (antiglobulin, or anti-human globulin rabbit immune serum) is added to detect incomplete (non-agglutinating, univalent, blocking) antibodies coating erythrocytes. The direct test is applied to red cells which have been coated with antibody in vivo (e.g., in hemolytic disease of newborn, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and transfusion reactions). The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibody (e.g., in detection of incompatibility in cross-matching tests, detection and identification of irregular antibodies, and in detection of antibodies not identifiable by other means).

Hematologic Tests definition: Tests used in the analysis of the hemic system.
blood test definition: tests used in the analysis of the hemic system.

laboratory test definition: A medical procedure that involves testing a sample of blood, urine, or other substance from the body. Tests can help determine a diagnosis, plan treatment, check to see if treatment is working, or monitor the disease over time.

Pain Assessment definition: The evaluation of pain complaints. Measurements should be objective on the part of the practitioner, based on subjective information from the patient.

Stanford-Binet Test definition: An individual intelligence test designed primarily for school children to predict school performance and the ability to adjust to everyday demands.
Test definition: A procedure for critical evaluation; a means of determining the presence, quality, or truth of something.
Testing definition: A procedure for critical evaluation.
cell mediated lymphocytolysis test definition: effector Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (CTL) bind targets (infected cells) bearing virus peptide on syngeneic Class I MHC and signal the targets to undergo apoptosis; if the targets are labeled with 51Chromium before the CTL are added, the amount of 51Cr released into the supernatant is proportional to the number of targets killed.
Chemistry Test definition: A laboratory test designed for the quantification of an organic or inorganic chemical within a biological specimen.
Chemistry Test definition: The quantification of a simple organic or inorganic chemical within a biological specimen. This does not include complex proteins or enzymes.
corticotropin definition: OBSOLETE. A polypeptide hormone which stimulates the adrenal cortex to synthesize and secrete glucocorticoid hormones. [http://cancerweb.ncl.ac.uk/, ISBN:0198506732 "Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology"]

Adrenocorticotropic Hormone Measurement definition: The determination of the amount of adrenocorticotropic hormone present in a sample.
Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Measurement definition: The determination of the amount of alpha-1 antitrypsin present in a sample.
behavior test definition: standardized set of questions or stimuli which are administered to assess or measure the presence or absence of a particular skill, knowledge or behavior.
Cholesterol Test Kits definition: Disposable, handheld home-testing devices used to determine a patient's total cholesterol level from fingerprick whole blood. These kits employ paper chromatography in a test cassette as the methodology of measurement and give quantitative results. Materials in the test kit may include a lancing device, a collector, and a cassette or credit-card-sized device for testing.
AIDS/HIV test definition: any clinical test whose results can be used to diagnosis AIDS; including tests for HIV infection, CD4 lymphocyte count, tests for microorganisms such as Pneumocystis, etc.; for diagnosis by symptoms and other factors, use AIDS DIAGNOSIS.
Bioluminescence definition: The production of light by certain living organisms, including fireflies and phytoplankton, by the conversion of chemical to radiant energy.
