THE fluorescent antibody conjugate technique recently developed by Coons1 has already proved of great value in the study of biological problems. In this technique, a fluorescent substance is covalently linked to an antibody, and the antibody conjugate is allowed to react with cells or tissue containing its homologous antigen. The antigen is then detected and localized by observing the fluorescence in an optical microscope. For many reasons, it is desirable to extend this method to the sub… CONTINUE READING
