Technical data sheet
The sample is solvent extracted 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 developer and stop solution are added. The color of the well is observed for the presence/quantity of ochratoxins in the sample.
