The MaxSignal® Trifluralin ELISA Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of trifluralin in fish and meat. Trifluralin is a selective, preemergence dinitroaniline herbicide used to control many annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in a large variety of tree fruit, nut, vegetable, and grain crops. However, trifluralin can persist in soils for many months after it is used and is highly toxic to aquatic animals (fish and invertebrates).
Sediment-feeding organisms are particularly at risk because of the tendency of trifluralin to bioaccumulate. Studies also suggest exposure-related abnormalities in the vertebral development of aquatic animals, at low concentrations.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
