The book says, rubella titer should be 1:8 or more... what does this "more" mean? 1:10 or 1:6?

1:10 is more. Titers are a measure of how much blood can be diluted before no antibodies are present. So the higher the titer/dilution ratio (ie. 1 part blood to 10 parts saline solution in this example), the more antibodies in the blood.

It makes sense to me now. Thanks! :)
