Over the past 10 years an immunoperoxidase method using dinitrophenyl (DNP) hapten-labelled primary or secondary probes has been devised. Its widely successful application in research and diagnostic work has depended upon the development of certain key reagents. These include a novel non-deleterious DNP labelling compound, a unique multivalent monoclonal bridge antibody, and an efficient DNP hapten substituted or anti-DNP linked marker enzyme. In this article the development of these reagents and various modifications of the basic technique are reviewed in conjunction with the special applications accruing from their use.
