The CDIATM Cd Colloidal Gold Test Cassette (Milk) is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Cd in milk.
Cd antigen is coated on the test region of the nitrocellulose membrane of the strips, and Cd antibody is labeled with colloid gold. During a test, the colloid gold labeled antibody coated in the strip move forward along the membrane, and a red line will show up when the antibody gathers with the antigen in the test line; if Cd in the sample is over the detection limit, line T is blank; on the other wise, if Cd in the sample is less than the detection limit, line T is red.
Cadmium (Cd) is an extremely toxic industrial and environmental pollutant classified as a human carcinogen, Group 1-according to International Agency for Research on Cancer, Group 2a-according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and 1B carcinogen classified by European Chemical Agency. Cadmium poisoning is harmful to people. The bones become soft (osteomalacia), lose bone mineral density (osteoporosis) and become weaker. The kidneys lose their function to remove acids from the blood in proximal renal tubular dysfunction.
