A competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of MG/LMG in shrimps, fish, eel and water samples.
Malachite Green (MG) is a synthetic dye. MG is highly soluble in water and has long been used in the aquaculture industry as an effective fungicide and disinfectant. MG is potentially carcinogenic and may cause significant health risk for humans who consume contaminated fish. Its use is banned in the European Union; a Minimum Required Performance Limit (MRPL) of 2 ppb is set.
The Malachite Green ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay based on antibodies directed against malachite green.
