The antigen-antibody complex was immunostained using alkaline phosphatase-conjugated anti-human-IgG secondary antibodies.
Precipitation reactions involve formation of an insoluble antigen-antibody complex under appropriate conditions.
The binding of the antigen-antibody complex was visualized by the scientists through a colorimetric reaction that involved a goat anti-rabbit immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody, labeled with alkaline phosphatase, and the substrate p-nitrophenyl phosphate.
Today, most immunoassays work on the basic principles of the antigen-antibody complex. In the late 1950s, the first immunoassays were developed.
The antigen-antibody complex formation was detected by using secondary antibody (sheep anti-rabbit IgG HRP conjugate).
