The QuantiTox Kit for Trichothecenes from EnviroLogix is a 96-well plate kit designed for the quantitative laboratory detection of tricothecenes, including roridin A, E, H and L-2, satratoxin G and H, isosatratoxin F, verrucarin A and J, and verrucarol in bulk samples.
The kit is a competitive Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay, or ELISA. Tricothecenes in the sample compete with enzyme-labeled satratoxin for a limited number of antibody binding sites on the inside surface of the test wells. After a simple wash step, the outcome of the competition is visualized with a color-development step (darker color = lower concentration).
