The CDIATM Cd Immunofluorescence Test Strip (Milk) is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Cd in milk.
The Test is a competitive binding immunoassay in which Cd in a sample compete with immobilized Cd conjugate for limited labeled antibody binding sites. When a sufficient amount of specimen is applied to the sample pad of the test device, the specimen migrates through the test device by capillary action. The Cd in the sample combines with the antibody labeled with the fluorescent microspheres, and inhibits the binding of the antibody and Cd on the NC membrane test line (T line) , thus resulting in changes in the fluorescence intensity of the T and C line. Read the result by using the fluorescence reader.
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.
