Method Reference:

Neogen 8210


Method Description:

The sample is solvent extracted and the extract is filtered. Free toxin in the sample and controls competes with enzyme-labeled toxin (conjugate) for the antibody binding sites. After a wash step, substrate reacts with the bound enzyme conjugate to produce blue color. A microwell reader is used to determine optical densities. Sample optical densities are plotted against the curve to calculate exact concentration of toxin.



Additional Information:

This method measures the amount of T-2 toxin, which is a naturally-occurring mold byproduct of Fusarium mold. Concentrated food additives, colors, and flavors may cause interferences on ELISA test methods.
