autoradiography

A method of producing a permanent record of a pattern of molecules to which radioactive tracers have been attached, by laying a photographic film in close contact with the medium containing the molecules. Autoradiography is commonly performed following ELECTROPHORESIS of molecules.

autoradiography

the making of a radiograph of an object or tissue by recording on an x-ray plate the radiation emitted by radioactive material within the object. An immunologic technique used to visualize radioactive molecules in tissue sections or electrophoretic gels. Called also radioautography.
