Abstract

An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of 3-acetyldeoxynivalenol has been set up with an antiserum preparation raised against a bovine serum albumin - 3-acetyldeoxynivalenol hemiglutarate conjugate. The assay is an indirect, double antibody immunoassay performed on microtitration plates, and is sensitive (with a limit of detection of 1 pg per well) and specific. The assay has been validated for application to rice with a sensitivity of 1 ng g-1. Sample extraction is a simple solubilisation procedure. The immunoassay described has a number of advantages over conventional methods of analysis.
