Rapid test for paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) from Neogen® can screen shellfish samples at 800 ppb.
PSP causing toxins can be produced by dinoflagellates of different genera including Alexandrium and Gymnodinium. The most researched toxin responsible for PSP is saxitoxin (STX). Reveal 2.0 for PSP is intended for the qualitative screening of shellfish, which produces a positive result with samples containing approximately 800 ppb STX equivalents or greater, which is the action limit established by both the FDA and EU.
Neogen's lateral flow device Reveal® combines an immunoassay with chromatography for a rapid and accurate one-step result. Built-in visual control lines provide definitive interpretations.
