Abstract

Exposure of polystyrene tubes to solutions of glutaraldehyde was shown to provide a stable and consistent surface for immobilising an unpurified norethisterone-specific antiserum. Properties of the solid-phase antiserum were evaluated with respect to its application in developing a solid-phase radioimmunoassay for norethisterone. The assay proved to be sufficiently accurate, precise and sensitive for routine use. The technology is considered to be suited to automation.

Antibody Specificity

Antibodies produced by B cells are highly specific for antigen as a result of random gene recombination and somatic hypermutation and affinity maturation. As the main effector of the humoral immune system, antibodies can neutralize foreign cells. Find the latest research on antibody specificity here.
