Veratox for Aflatoxin is a direct competitive ELISA in a microwell format, which allows the user to obtain exact concentrations in parts per billion (ppb). Free aflatoxin in the samples and controls is allowed to compete with enzyme-labelled aflatoxin (conjugate) for the antibody binding sites. After a wash step, substrate is added, which reacts with the bound conjugate to produce blue colour. More blue colour means less aflatoxin. The test is read in a microwell reader to yield optical densities. The optical densities of the controls form the standard curve, and the sample optical densities are plotted against the curve to calculate the exact concentration of aflatoxin.
