Radioimmunoassay

Introduction: Radioimmunoassay

Description of Radioimmunoassay

Radioimmunoassay: quantitative chemical test based on displacement of radioligand from antigen-antibody complex; usually the radioligand and unknown are antigens; antibody specificity permits use of crude samples and antisera.
Source: CRISP

Radioimmunoassay: Classic quantitative assay for detection of antigen-antibody reactions using a radioactively labeled substance (radioligand) either directly or indirectly to measure the binding of the unlabeled substance to a specific antibody or other receptor system. Non-immunogenic substances (e.g., haptens) can be measured if coupled to larger carrier proteins (e.g., bovine gamma-globulin or human serum albumin) capable of inducing antibody formation.
