Abstract : The invention disclosed in this application is directed towards developing a radioiodination method which is applicable to the labeling of 2.02 micrometer and 0.37 micrometer diameter polyvinyltoluene latex particles that have been used as an immunoadsorbent. More particularly the overall method includes using an oxidation-reduction chemical reaction for tagging latex particles. Two methods are described. One, the hydrochloric acid method; and two, the nitric acid method. (Author)
