In 1962, Rothenberg also described an assay for vitamin B12 but he used protein precipitation to separate free from bound tracer (3). In 1963, Beverley E. P. Murphy at McGill University measured plasma corticoids using corticosteroid-binding globulin as the binder and 14C-cortisol as the ligand. Dialysis was used for separation of free from bound (4). Later, Sephadexe G25 gel filtration columns were used for the separation step (5). The paper presented here is the application of a CPB assay for total T4 in human serum.
If a small molecule like fluorescein binds to a large molecule like a protein its free rotational movement is slowed down. When excited in this bound state its emitted fluorescent light remains polarized in the same plane as the excitation light. The degree of polarization of the emitted light is directly related to the amount of fluorophore that has bound. Laurence in 1952 used FP to study the binding of various fluorescent dyes to bovine serum albumin (1). Steiner measured the binding of a soybean inhibitor-fluorescein conjugate to the enzyme trypsin in 1954 (2).
The Abbott TDxe FPIA analyzer was introduced in 1981. It went on to become one of the most successful immunoassay analyzers in clinical chemistry. R.
