We monitored the reaction kinetics at pH values of 6.5-9.5, observing that immunoagglutination decreased with increasing pH (data not shown); no significant differences were observed when several nonionic detergents were used at concentrations up to 1 mL/L, although the addition of nonionic detergent increases the microparticle stability by decreasing the nonspecific binding.
To elucidate the dyeing performance further, the color parameters and the fastness properties (wash, light, alkaline perspiration and rubbing) of pre and post-washed (using a nonionic detergent at 50AdegC) dyed fabric, were explored using Datacolor spectrophotometer SF600.
The dyed fabric was then removed and rinsed thoroughly with cold water followed by another wash with a nonionic detergent at 50 AdegC.
