The sample is extracted into solvent and the extract is added to a solution of enzyme-conjugated toxin. The mixture is then transferred to an antibody-coated plastic well where the free toxin and the enzyme-conjugated toxin compete for antibody sites. After rinsing, a color developing agent and a stop solution are added. The color of the well is evaluated for the presence/quantity of fumonisins in the sample.
This test measures the total amount of fumonisin (FB1, FB2 and FB3), produced by several species of Fusarium molds in a sample. It does not provide results that are specific to the individual fumonisin species.
