Technical data sheet
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.
Commodity grains such as corn, cornmeal, and rice.
This method is not designed for the analysis of psyllium powder, nutraceuticals, oils, or flavor extracts. Concentrated food additives, colors and flavors may also cause interferences when using ELISA-based test methods.

Sample size requirements
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.
Concentrated food additives, colors and flavors may cause interferences when using ELISA-based test methods.
