Abstract:

The current investigation involves an application of a technique developed by Walter B. Dandliker, Ph. D., Professor of Biochemistry, University of Miami School of Medicine. This involves measurements of fluorescence polarization andor intensity measurements made on solutions which contain fluorescent-labelled antigens or antibodies. This technique was studied in great detail by Doctor Dandliker using fluorescein-labelled ovalbumin and rabbit antifluorescein ovalbumin. Fluorescence polarization measurements were made with a modified light-scattering apparatus. His need for more sophisticated and accurate optical equipment soon became obvious and an improved polarometer was built for by Cordis Corporation.
