Our homogeneous immunoprecipitation inhibition assay (Clin. Chem. 28:659-661, 1982) is applied here to tobramycin, phenobarbital, and theophylline. Only 10-50 microL of test sample is needed. No sample treatment, dilution, or extraction is required. A test serum sample is simultaneously mixed with a drug conjugate and its specific antiserum in a centrifugal(More)
Here we report on a novel system based on aromatic thioethers with unique luminescence properties. Fifteen different compounds were investigated in detail on their luminescence properties using UV/Vis absorption and steady-state and time-resolved luminescence spectroscopy. Excited state lifetimes as well as quantum yields were determined, and the toxicity(More)
A new homogeneous immunoprecipitation inhibition assay has been developed to quantitate concentrations of hapten in human serum or plasma without the use of radioactive isotopes, enzymes, fluorescent markers, or laser nephelometers. This immunoprecipitation is based on spectrophotometric measurement of the inhibition by free hapten of the precipitating(More)
We labeled IgG with phospholipase C, using 1-cyclohexyl-3-(2-morpholinoethyl)-carbodiimide. Enzymaticactivity of the resulting conjugate was inhibited when it was complexed with human IgG, but rabbit or goat IgG was not effective in suppressing the enzyme activity. Normal erythrocytes were used as substrate for the enzyme, enzymatic activity being assessed(More)
We evaluated a new homogeneous immunoprecipitation assay for phenytoin in human serum. No sample dilution or pretreatment is required. The new method is based on spectrophotometry of the inhibition by free phenytoin of the precipitating reaction between anti-phenytoin antibody and a phenytoin-human serum albumin conjugate. A serum test sample is(More)
We report here the inhibition of enzyme activity of phospholipase C-anti-human rabbit IgG conjugate complexed with human IgG. Phospholipase C activity was measured by assaying the release of hemoglobin from erythrocytes. The degree of inhibition varies depending on the relative amount of IgG utilized. A water soluble carbodiimide linking yields a conjugate(More)
