Overview

The MaxSignal® Aflatoxin M1 ELISA Kit is a competitive ELISA for the quantitative analysis of Aflatoxin M1. Aflatoxin M1 is the hydroxylated metabolite of Aflatoxin B1. Aflatoxins are believed to be one of the most carcinogenic naturally occurring substances capable of liver and DNA damage. In 1987, the WHO classified aflatoxins as Group 1 carcinogens. Aflatoxin M1 is known to be oxidized by the mixed-function oxygenases of the liver P-450 system. This oxidation results in a reactive 8,9-epoxide as the major product, which seems to preferentially attack certain guanine residues in double stranded DNA. Aflatoxicosis is the disease caused by ingestion of aflatoxins in contaminated food or feed.

This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001.

Application Note

High Throughput Screening of Aflatoxin M1 in Milk Samples by Automated ELISA Platform

ELISA assays are widely used for the detection of aflatoxins M1 in milk for regulatory conformance owing to the high sensitivity, selectivity, and ease of use of the method. In the following study we demonstrate the accuracy and precision of the MaxSignal® Aflatoxin M1 ELISA kit at the EU MRL of 0.05 ppb and the US MRL of 0.5 ppb. We also provide data showing the limit of detection (LOD) of the kit. Further, we show the variability between performance of manual ELISA and DS2 automated ELISA platform.

Rapid Test Kits to Detect Residues in Dairy Products

Strip tests detect the most commonly used antibiotics found in cow’s milk. These AuroFlow tests are fast and easy-to-use in a laboratory or in the field, without requiring any additional equipment. In fact, milk can be directly introduced to a sample tube in the new AuroFlow PR1ME kits – the mixing step having been eliminated – and the test strip inserted immediately for results within minutes. PerkinElmer’s test strips are manufactured to test for European Union and CODEX maximum residue limits (MRL). PerkinElmer offers solutions for the detection of a multitude of drug residues, pasteurization verification, and Aflatoxin M1 by other methods such as ELISA based testing.
