The non-specific agglutination by calcium phosphate sols of a range of erythrocytes from various animals has been studied. With all species of erythrocytes chosen, the broad result emerges that the agglutination is controlled by the potential of the sols. The potential can be varied in sign and magnitude by altering the ratio of calcium to phosphate in the precipitating solutions. In particular, agglutination becomes maximal when the sols have their highest positive charge.
