Art. No.: RBRDP07 / RBRP07
The procedure is based on monoclonal antibody technology, which makes the test highly specific, sensitive, rapid and simple to perform.
The columns contain a gel suspension of monoclonal antibody specific to the toxins of interest. Following extraction of the toxins the sample extract is filtered, diluted and passed slowly through the immunoaffinity column. Any toxins which are present in the sample are retained by the antibody within the gel suspension. The column is washed to remove unbound material and the toxins are then released from the column following elution with solvent. The eluate is collected prior to analysis by HPLC or LC-MS/MS. Aflatoxins are required to be derivatised when anal HPLC or LC-MS/MS. Aflatoxins are required to be derivatised when analysed by HPLC.
- The columns give excellent recoveries and low % RSD. Capacity and limit of detection exceed international legislation and CEN / AOAC requirements.
- Improved clean-up and concentration of toxin from complex food matrices resulting in reduced chromatography interference and lower detection limits.
- The columns are suitable for testing a wide range of commodities.
