(rā'dē-ō-im'yū-nō-ē-lek'trō-fō-rē'sis),
Immunoelectrophoresis in which the antigen or antibody is labeled with a radioisotope; for example, in testing for insulin-binding antibodies by treating the test serum with radioactive iodine-labeled insulin, subjecting the mixture (antigen) to electrophoresis, precipitating the separated immunoglobulins with immunoglobulin-specific antiserum, and, then, with radiosensitive film (autoradiography), testing for bound insulin in the precipitates.
