We investigated the usefulness of the acidified glycerol lysis test (AGLT) as a diagnostic tool for anemic patients in Japan. The results of the AGLT were found to be useful indicators of autoimmune processes and red cell membrane defects. When glycerol permeability was low and AGLT50 could not be determined, the reduction in optical density could be measured accurately by calculating the value during the first two minutes.
