Enzyme immunoassay of progesterone in saliva
- 13 Downloads
A very sensitive enzyme immunoassay for direct measurement of progesterone has been developed. It is a solid phase assay on microtitre plates and there are no extraction, separation or centrifugation steps. The assay is suitable for frequent monitoring of progesterone levels in saliva during the menstrual cycle. Expensive equipment or special facilities are not required. The assay is very suitable for hospital laboratories that currently lack facilities for measuring progesterone by radioimmunoassay.
