TILTON Early diagnosis and prompt institution of specific antimicrobial therapy are required for the effective treatment of infectious disease. Traditionally, the laboratory has isolated and identified the specific etiologic agent and, when possible, determined its antimicrobial susceptibility profile. If cultural studies were not possible, then a diagnosis could be made by observing the appearance or disappearance of specific antibodies.

For example, a gentamicin molecule is labeled with fluorescein. There is competition for antibody binding sites between fluorescent and unlabeled gentamicin. In fluorescence polarization immunoassay, the binding of fluorescein-gentamicin to antibody is measured by determining its fluorescence polarization. The polarization of the fluorescent signal is directly proportional to the amount of labeled gentamicin bound and inversely proportional to the unlabeled antibiotic. Amplified Enzyme Immunoassay Systems Many attempts have been made to maximize the sensitivity of enzyme immunoassays by amplifying the signal.
