Avidin-biotin immunofluorescence

holds promise for more sensitive and specific amplification of indirect fluorescent antibody procedures. Antibody to the patients specific antibodies is labelled with biotin, a compound capable of specifically binding avidin in high concentrations. Fluorescent labelled avidin is then added and fluorescent microscopy is used to detect the presence of the complexes.
