If your Glycophorin A is a direct conjugate, you should dilute it with
unlabeled Glycophorin A, thus reducing the signal but still saturating
the sialoglycoprotein with antibodies.
What is 1 microliter per lambda? Erythrocytes are bright for Glycophrin
A, so 0.01 micrograms of antibody per microliter of blood is not
