Austin, TX, United States, 2012/02/13 - Bioo Scientific’s new ELISAs increase speed and sensitivity of Aflatoxin M1 Analysis in milk; one with increased speed and other with increased sensitivity - BiooScientific.com.
Bioo Scientific (biooscientific.com) has added to its line of simple, quick, and fully quantitative ELISAs for mycotoxins with the introduction of two new MaxSignal® Aflatoxin M1 ELISA Kits; one with increased speed and other with increased sensitivity. Both of these kits were designed to simplify the analysis of dairy products for Aflatoxin M1 contamination. Aflatoxin M1 is the hydroxylated metabolite of aflatoxin B1 and can be found in milk obtained from livestock that have been fed feed contaminated with Aspergillus molds.
The sensitive version of the MaxSignal® Aflatoxin M1 ELISA Kit (Cat # 1060-05) offers sensitivity of 5 ppt (0.005 ppb) directly in milk samples. The rapid version (Cat # 1060-02) can be completed in only 30 minutes offering a sensitivity of 100 ppt (0.1 ppb) for milk and cheese samples. Both of these kits do not require any extraction process for milk samples.
These kits are Bioo Scientific’s latest additions to the MaxSignal® kits. The line of kits for mycotoxin detection includes ELISAs for total aflatoxin, aflatoxin B1, DON, T-2 Toxin, Fumonisin, Ochratoxin A and Zearalenone analysis. These kits are all manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-01-B).
