Although enhanced sensitivity of erythrocytes to complement-mediated lysis is a hallmark of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (pnh), subpopulations of erythrocytes in such patients vary significantly in this respect one pnh erythrocyte subpopulation (termed type iii) comprises exquisitely. Sheep erythrocytes generally act as non-activators of complement-mediated lysis in human serum a small number of c3b molecules spontaneously generated through ap tick-over are deposited on the surface of sheep erythrocytes.

In the serum complement assay, a patient's serum is mixed with sheep red blood cells coated with antibodies if complement is present in sufficient quantities, 50% of the red blood cells are lysed lower amounts of lysed cells are associated with decreased complement levels.
Description complement haemolytic activity is a functional test of the classical and alternative pathway of complement in plasma or serum the classical pathway method (ch50) is based on lysis of sensibilized sheep erythrocytes in the presence of ca++ and mg+.
