- Designed for use with direct fluorometric detection of M1 aflatoxin in milk
- Fast - Sample ready in less than 7 minutes
- Sensitive - The limit of detection is 0.05 ppb
- Safe - Uses nontoxic materials for sample prep protocols
The AflaPure™ M1 Aflatoxin Rapid Column Kit contains immunoaffinity columns for the convenient purification and enrichment of aflatoxin M1 from milk samples for downstream direct fluorescence detection. The limit of detection using these columns is 0.05 ppb.
AflaPure™ M1 immunoaffinity columns use a simple procedure to enrich aflatoxin from milk samples. A defatted milk sample is passed through the column to bind the aflatoxin. After washing the column with a wash solution, the aflatoxin is eluted using methanol.
The enriched samples are suitable for subsequent analysis by HPLC or ELISA detection. Each column is disposable and should only be used once.
Aflatoxins are naturally occurring fungal toxins that can be present in many different types of food. Contamination of food with aflatoxin can cause a variety of illnesses including liver cancer.
For HPLC analysis, Bioo Scientific also offers the AflaPure™ M1 Aflatoxin Column Kit - 1 mL (Cat 1402-01) for enrichment of aflatoxin M1 from milk.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008. ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-A
The AflaPure M1 Aflatoxin Rapid Column Kit contains 25 columns. Store the kit at a refrigerated temperature (2 - 8°C), but do not freeze. The shelf life is 18 months when the kit is properly stored.
