Screening of Aflatoxin B1 in Food and Feed
The aflatoxins are a group of structurally related extremely toxic compounds produced by some Aspergillus species. Aflatoxins cause cancer, mainly of the liver but also of the gut, lungs and breasts in human. In order to test for AFB1 analytical methods such as HPLC, GC-MS, LC-MS, ELISA and TLC require trained personnel, laboratory environment, expensive equipment and analytical time takes hours or days. The Flow-Through Rapid Test kit offers rapidity and flexibility for screening AFB1 under non-laboratory environments in conformity to the EU regulations.
A Precise, and highy sensitive assay
The Flow-Through Rapid Test for AFB1 can detect AFB1 in different matrices with sensitivities down to 2 ppb.
Food samples are prepared for analysis by simply shaking the sample by hand in the presence of an extraction solution. An aliquot of the supernatant is diluted and used in the assay.
Results within 10 minutes
(a) The Flow-Through Rapid Test for AFB1 has a detection limit of 2 ppb (ng/g) (EU Reg.).
(b) Configured for 1 – 10 tests at a time
(c) Reagents are added drop-wise
(d) Results are visually interpreted
