Traditionally radioactively labeled iodine has been used as a reporter group for the detection of antibodies in immunoassay. We have recently developed a microassay system for the detection of very low concentrations of iodide which eliminates the need for the use of radiolabeled iodine (O'Kennedy, R. et al. 1989, Anal. Biochem. 179, 138-144). The successful application of this assay for the detection of mouse IgG is described. The performance of this system compared with enzyme immunoassay was evaluated.
