11. Which of the following is incorrect regarding radioimmunoassays?
1. The labeled or radioactive molecule is called a tracer.
2. The general principle of this technique is the competition between the radioactive Ag (tracer) and the non-labeled Ag for binding to its specific Ab.
3. The amount of unlabelled Ag is determined by counting in a liquid scintillation counter or in a gamma counter that measures the type of radiation emitted.
4. This technique is used for the detection of hormones

2. They are immunoassays that use radioactive isotopes as markers.
3. They are immunoassays that use fluorochromes as markers.
4. They are immunoassays that use colored nanoparticles as markers.
13. For an enzyme to be used in an EIA, it must meet all the following criteria except:
1. High amount of stability
2. Extreme specificity
3. Presence of antigen or antibody
4. No alteration by inhibitor with the system
14. When we perform an immunochromatography technique for the detection of an Ag__________
1. If a colored band forms in the detection zone, it is because there is Ac in the problem sample.
2. If a colored band does not form in the detection zone, it is because there is Ag in the problem sample.
3. If a colored band does not form in the detection zone, it is because there is Ac in the problem sample.
4. If a colored band forms in the detection zone, it is because there is Ag in the problem sample.
