The link below mentions "antigen end-point titration procedure" so I'm guessing it may be something along these lines.

operaciones de determinación de antígenos

I think it's a typo and means "antigen determination".

"Terminación de antigenos" gets only seven hits, and they appear to be cases where "determinación" is spread across two lines with a hyphen, and Google has misread it as "terminación". Here's one:

"su aislamiento en el esputo y en ausencia de las pruebas de de-terminación
de antígenos, no se ha..."

"Antigen determination" makes perfect sense in the context. Here's a couple of the 40,000 hits:
Serum cryptococcal antigen determination in the presence of rheumatoid factor.

Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection by stool antigen determination

Just in case it's not obvious, they determine the antigens so they can develop vaccines.
