Research Interests & Projects
My research interest involves Immunoassay Development through the use of non-radioactive
labeling techniques. We have been involved in raising antibodies in a number of species,
labeling antibodies and ligands with a variety of non-radioactive tracers and using
these reagents to develop highly sensitive and specific assays for reproductive markers.
These assays are being adapted to a variety of formats which include manual, automated
and microtiter plates. Further emphasis is placed on the synthesis of novel luminescent
molecules that may be adaptable to labeling and conversion of the existing radioimmunoassays
to chemiluminescent assays.
