Separation Free Chemiluminescence Immunoassay
As the process of nuclear decay is unaffected by the physico-chemical enviroment, the separation of the antibodybound and free fraction is an obligatory step in most radioimmunoassay systems. The inclusion of the separation technique has certain disadvantages including increased time of assay, the need for additional equipment, difficulty of automation and finally an increased source of error.
