Abstract

We describe the effects of multiple freeze and thaw cycles on the sensitivity of the immunoglobulins IgG and IgM measured by enzyme-linked immunoassays in the sera of patients with syphilis. Stored frozen sera can withstand repeated freezing and thawing cycles with a minimal detrimental effect on the sensitivity of the sera.
