Abstract

The use of radiolabeled leucocytes has become a subject of an increased interest for the detection and localization of infections in addition to radiologic and endoscopic examinations, but all methods proposed for cell labeling have some limitations and only a few are put into practice outside the specialized laboratories (Locher et al. 1986). Although much progress has been achieved in recent years, the techniques of cell labeling in vitro remain complex and time consuming.
