A rapid, centrifugation-free radioimmunoassay specific for human chorionic gonadotropin using glass beads as solid phase

, : A rapid, centrifugation-free radioimmunoassay specific for human chorionic gonadotropin using glass beads as solid phase. Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism 50(1): 169-175

A simple, specific, rapid, centrifugation-free solid phase RIA for hCG has been developed. Purified gamma-globulin isolated from antisera produced against hCG-beta in rabbits is covalently linked to glutaraldehyde-activated aminopropyl glass beads. The entire assay can be completed within 3 h at room temperature. The sensitivity (1 ng/ml), precision (intra- and interassay variabilities, less than 10% and less than 15%, respectively), and specificity (0.4% cross-reactivity with LH) are comparable to other methods. The hCG levels determined by the present method show good correlation with those obtained by another RIA and by radioreceptorassay. The present method also provides the basis for the development of similar rapid and sensitive assays of other hormones.

A simple method is proposed for studying the spectral response of a first-order waveguide grating filter with random fluctuations in the period of the grating. The method can be applied to any grating groove shape, and it can be used to study the...
