Abstract

Radioimmunoassay (RIA) is a highly sensitive and specific analytical tool used for detection of antigen or antibody in a sample. RIA combines the principles of radioactivity of isotopes and immunological reactions of antigen and antibody. The principle is based on the competition between labelled and unlabelled antigens to bind with antibody to form antigen-antibody complexes.
