Overview

  • Sensitive saxitoxin detection
  • Faster results - less than 1.5 hours from sample to results
  • cost effective - No expensive instrumentation required
  • Easy, high recovery sample preparation
MaxSignal® Saxitoxin (PSP) ELISA Kit is a competitive ELISA for the quantitative analysis of Saxitoxin. Saxitoxin, the principal component of paralytic shellfish poisons (PSP), blocks the sodium ion channels in nerve and muscle membranes. The lethal dose in humans is 1-3 mg. Numbness and respiratory paralysis can occur after oral ingestion of as little as 0.5-1.0 µg saxitoxin. Saxitoxin residues can be determined by either GC-MS or HPLC. However, enzyme immunoassays (ELISA) show considerable advantages as it is faster and more sensitive. MaxSignal® Saxitoxin (PSP) ELISA Kit enables international and government regulatory agencies, food manufacturers and processors, as well as quality assurance organizations, to detect saxitoxin in shellfish matrices and to satisfy customer concerns about food safety. This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001.
