The adsorption of antibody to polymeric surfaces has been used to develop a new method of solid-phase radioimmunoassay. Incubation is performed in antibody-coated, disposable tubes that are finally washed-out with water and counted for quantitation of the bound tracer. The method is simple, rapid, inexpensive, and suitable for automation.
