Abstract Juvenile hormone from the hemolymph of adult worker honey bees of known age and behavioral status was extracted and analyzed by two different radioimmunoassays in two independent laboratories. The assays are different in hapten attachment, radiolabeled tracer, and the method by which bound and unbound hormone are separated. Despite these differences in the methods, hormone determinations were in excellent agreement at lower levels (0-50 ng/ml) but diverged as the hormone concentrations increased (> 50 ng/ml). The relative changes are in good agreement, with a correlation coefficient of 0.97.
