Zearalenone ELISA Assay

 

The Helica Biosystems' Zearalenone ELISA is a competitive enzyme-linked immunoassay intended for the

quantitative detection of zearalenone in cereal crops, such as maize, barley, oats, wheat, rice, and sorghum

and also in bread.

 

Zearalenone, also known as RAL and F-2 mycotoxin, is a potent estrogenic metabolite produced by some

Giberella species, a fungal plant pathogen. Several Fusarium species produce toxic substances of

considerable concern to livestock and poultry producers: namely, deoxynivalenol, T-2 toxin, HT-2 toxin,

diacetoxyscirpenol (DAS) and zearalenone. Zearalenone is the primary toxin causing infertility, abortion or

other breeding problems, especially in swine.

 

Zearalenone is heat-stable and is found worldwide in a number of cereal crops, such as maize, barley,

oats, wheat, rice, and sorghum and also in bread.

 

Commonly used extraction solvents are aqueous mixtures of methanol, acetonitrile or ethyl acetate followed

by a range of different clean-up procedures that depend in part on the food and on the detection method in

use. TLC methods and HPLC are commonly used. HPLC alone is not sufficient as it may often yield false

positive results.
