The CDIATM Hg Immunofluorescence Test Strip (Milk) is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Hg in milk.
The Test is a competitive binding immunoassay in which Hg in a sample compete with immobilized Hg 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 Hg in the sample combines with the antibody labeled with the fluorescent microspheres, and inhibits the binding of the antibody and Hg 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.
Mercury is a chemical element with symbol Hg. It is commonly known as quicksilver. The most toxic forms of mercury are its organic compounds, such as dimethylmercury and methylmercury. Mercury can cause both chronic and acute poisoning. Mercury poisoning can result from exposure to water-soluble forms of mercury, by inhalation of mercury vapor, or by ingesting any form of mercury.
