Radio-phosphate binding assay

... solutio contains 5 uCi radiolabelled P-32 (beta emission), suspended in 10ml 10mM Tris-Cl buffer ph 7.0. I expect to see something on my developed phosphorescent plates, but I see nothing except background radiation. As a positive control, I passed a dye (10ul), that binds phosphate, through the ...
