Neogen’s rapid test for diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) can screen shellfish samples at 160 ppb.
Reveal 2.0 for DSP is a single step immunochromatographic lateral flow assay used for the rapid and practical qualitative analysis of shellfish possibly contaminated by OA group toxins (OA, DTX1, DTX2 and DTX3). These marine biotoxins can be accumulated in shellfish during toxic algal blooms. Once the toxin is present in the shellfish tissue it cannot be destroyed by heat during cooking. The US and EU have established maximum threshold levels of 160 ppb. The test can detect as little as 160 ppb of OA toxins in shellfish samples.
Neogen Reveal® 2.0 test systems have everything to complete a pathogen screen, including the enrichment medium. Reveal’s lateral flow device combines an immunoassay with chromatography for a rapid and accurate one-step result. Built-in visual control lines provide definitive interpretations.
