We describe a method for the detection of gangliosides on thin-layer chromatography plates using enhanced chemiluminescence. In contrast to previously published colorimetric techniques, the use of chemiluminescence to detect antibody binding to gangliosides has increased sensitivity and simplicity. In addition, the use of chemiluminescence lacks the hazards of radioactivity, and produces a permanent record.
