The CDIATM Folate Colloidal Gold Test Cassette (Milk) is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of folate in milk.
Folate antigen is coated on the test region of the nitrocellulose membrane of the strips, and folate 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 folate in the sample is over the detection limit, line T is blank; on the other wise, if folate in the sample is less than the detection limit, line T is red.
Folic acid is the form of folate used to treat anemia caused by folic acid deficiency. Folic acid is also used as a supplement by women during pregnancy. There are no common side effects. As humans cannot make folic acid, it is required from the diet, making it an essential vitamin.
