Immunoassays analyzing interactions between antigens and antibodies can be affected by capillary action together with binding affinity. This paper studies contact-angle changes of bacterial suspensions on antibody immobilized surfaces. The capillary action and the dried pattern of the bacterial suspensions are analyzed and correlated with specific- and nonspecific bindings between bacteria and antibodies.
