THE serological behaviour of red blood cells is known to be altered by treatment with dilute solutions of potassium periodate. There is also some evidence that during the interaction of potassium periodate solutions with red blood cells, measurable quantities of periodate ion are consumed1. While investigating the consumption of periodate ions by red blood cells, a method for the determination of relatively small amounts of serine was developed.
