However, for this scenario to be realistic, antibody preparations with high specific activity would have to be developed that would allow administration in a small volume.
Harjanne, a clinical chemist from Helsinki, with whom I discussed the principles of the proposed analytical methodology and its requirement for high specific activity labeled hormone preparations.
The advantages and consequent popularity of the approach owed primarily to the specificity deriving from the "molecular recognition" features characterizing many binding reactions on which living systems rely, coupled with a high sensitivity stemming (in part) from the use of a high specific activity label (such as a radioisotope) to observe the reactions between small numbers of reactant molecules.
The same basic approach has subsequently been adopted by many other manufacturers using other high specific activity nonisotopic labels, as recently reviewed by Kricka (36).
Nevertheless, using high specific activity labels, the optimal sensor-antibody concentration used in a noncompetitive assay design may be extremely low, although a reduction to below 0.
It also suggests that, using high specific activity labels, sensitivities of microspot assays are unlikely to be inferior and (depending on the measuring system) may be superior to the sensitivities achieved in macroscopic assays of conventional design.
Initially time-consuming and laborious, the technology was transformed in the 1980s by the emergence of noncompetitive labeled antibody methods (relying on high specific activity nonisotopic labels), yielding higher sensitivities in much shorter times than the original techniques and opening the way to the development of the many automatic instruments that dominate the field at the present time.
The availability of intrinsically fluorescent lanthanide chelate labels with low background fluorescence, high specific activity, and low nonspecific binding is beneficial for the assay formats.
The high specific activity and low nonspecific background of the lanthanide chelate labels make them ideal for this purpose [24-26].
