Sensitive One-step ELISA for Alfatoxin B1 Detection in Various Sample Types
The MaxSignal® Aflatoxin B1 ELISA Test Kit is a one-step, competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of aflatoxin B1 in cereals, feed, meat, milk and milk powder (Cat # 1055-04). Cat # 1055-03A offers a rapid 30 minutes assay with detection limits of 5.0 ppb in meat and feed samples.
Aflatoxin B1 is a toxic secondary metabolite of the fungi species Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus and A. nominus. Aflatoxins are believed to be the most carcinogenic naturally occurring substances. Aflatoxin B1 is the most potent of all of the aflatoxins. Aflatoxin B1 is most commonly found in peanuts, corn, and oil seeds such as cotton. Aflatoxin B1 has also been found to contaminate wheat, sorghum, Brazil nuts, legumes and rice as well as many other commercially important foods. As aflatoxin B1 is heat stable, it is very difficult to destroy once formed.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
