Abstract: A microdroplet test apparatus for use in HLA typing. The apparatus is an improvement upon the well known Terasaki tray which is in use for determining HLA antigens by measuring lymphocyte cytotoxicity. The apparatus includes a tray having a plurality of microtest wells wherein the sides of the microtest wells are designed to promote localization of lymphocytes or other cells being tested at the microtest well bottom. The apparatus further includes a cover having either rods or tubes which extend down into the test solution present in the microtest well to thereby control the amount of test solution which is present in the cylindrical optical view path through which the test solution is viewed by microscope for test result measurements.
