Abstract  

Trace amounts of thyroxine in model samples (160.0 ng.ml–1 and 20.0 ng.ml–1), and thyroxine and 3,5,3-triiodothyronine in blood plasma were determined by sub- superequivalence isotope dilution analysis and radio-immunoassay technique. Hormones were labelled by125I. The separation of antibody-bound hormone from free hormone was performed by ultracentrifugation. The results show higher accuracy of the sub- super-equivalence isotope dilution method over that of radioimunoassay.
