For comparison, inexpensive microplate readers for UV-visible absorption only are based on removable filters (a specific filter is purchased for the wavelength of interest) and are useful for routine/repetitive measurements at this wavelength, for example, if the same label is used in assays for routine screening of a library of enzyme inhibitors, or if an absorbance-based assay is used for routine medical labo­ ratory testing. Robotic options (liquid dispensing, stacking, incubating) as well as software options are generally available.

Methods for these very selective assays will be considered in later chapters. When faced with a true unknown, for example, during the isolation or purifica­ tion of a biomolecule, it can be important to characterize the unknown matrix, or the components in the unknown solution that are present along with the species of inter­ est. This involves the estimation of the total quantity of the different types of biomolecules. 1 In this method, the absorbance of the unknown solution in a 1-cm cuvette is measured at 260 nm and 280 nm.

The major types of radiation are called alpha (α), beta (β) and gamma (γ). Of these, the emitted β and γ forms of radiation are useful, due to the elements used in bioassays. Isotopes of carbon (14 C), phosphorus (32 P), sulphur (35 S) and hydrogen (3 H) emit β radiation, which consists of high-energy electrons. These electrons are detected by scintillation counting. Radioactive iodine (125 I) is also used as a tracer in bioassays and metabolic studies; it emits γ radiation, which has no mass or charge, but is detectable using a Geiger counter.
