The new trends in immunochemistry related to the replacement of radioisotopic labels with non-radioactive labels are presented. Immunoenzymatic, fluorescent and chemiluminescent techniques are described in terms of their basic principles and their most common applications. The advantages of computer-controlled calibration are also discussed.
