Using an antibody raised in the rabbit to ovine leutenizing hormone β subunit coupled to activated cellulose, a solid phase radioimmunoassay to detect early pregnancy in the South Indian bonnet monkey has been developed. Non-specific inhibition due to serum was eliminated by inclusion of new born calf serum in the assay tubes. The assay is simple, needs only one centrifugation and can be completed in 6 h at room temperature with no false positive results.
