CD Aflatoxin B1 Precise Test is a competitive immunoassay for the semi-quantitative detection of the presence of Aflatoxin B1 in the sample.
Aflatoxins are naturally occurring mycotoxins that are produced by many species of Aspergillus, a fungus, the most notable ones being Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxins are toxic and among the most carcinogenic substances known. After entering the body, aflatoxins may be metabolized by the liver to a reactive epoxide intermediate or hydroxylated to become
the less harmful aflatoxin M1.
Principle Of The Test
CD Aflatoxin B1 Precise Test is based on competitive lateral flow immunochromatographic assay. The Aflatoxin B1 conjugate in the test zone will capture the immuno-gold (colloid gold-AFB1 antibody conjugate), when there is very little dissociative AFB1 in the extraction. A visible red test band indicates a negative result when the control band (C zone) shows that the card is valid. The test band (T zone) will be not visible if AFB1 is present in concentration of the cut-off value and above which explains a positive result.
