Bioo Scientific Releases ELISA to Increase Sensitivity of Histamine Detection in Fish and Fish Meal

April 8, 2015

Bioo Scientific’s MaxSignal® Histamine ELISA Test Kit, optimized for the screening of histamine in fish and fish meal, is the most sensitive and rapid ELISA commercially available. This ELISA uses a rapid (15 minute) aqueous extraction method which does not require heating or organic extraction steps, and an assay protocol that only requires 25 minutes to simplify histamine detection. Additionally, the MaxSignal Histamine ELISA Test Kit can specifically detect as little as 3 ppm of histamine in fresh or frozen fish samples and 30 ppm in fish meal. Unlike other histamine ELISAs, the MaxSignal Histamine ELISA does not require time-consuming and laborious acylation steps. With detection over a wide range of histamine concentrations (3 – 270 ppm for fish samples), the MaxSignal Histamine ELISA Test Kit delivers highly reproducible, accurate, cost effective and easy histamine analysis for your most demanding needs.

According to Dr. Joe Krebs, Director of Protein Chemistry for Bioo Scientific: “The MaxSignal Histamine ELISA Test Kit is the latest addition to Bioo Scientific’s existing line of enzymatic assays and dipstick tests for the detection of histamine in food and feed samples.  Our enhanced portfolio of testing products provides our customers with the best selection of high quality products for histamine analysis in the Food and Feed Safety Industry.” This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-A).
