The Aflatoxin M1 rapid test kit is based on the specific immuno-chemical reactions between antigen and antibody. It relies on the competition between Aflatoxin residues in the sample and the Aflatoxin immobilized on T line on the membrane for the Aflatoxin antibody-dye conjugate. Since the drug has been presenting in the sample, it will compete with the drug immobilized on T line, to the limited amount of dye-antibody. As a sufficient amount of drug in the sample is presenting, the drug will saturate the antibody. Consequently, it will show an extremely lighter T line, indicating a positive result. On the other hand, if there is a negative sample (or the amount of the residue drug is lower than the minimum detectable concentration), it will generate two obvious lines in both the T and C line section.
Aflatoxins are naturally occurring mycotoxins that are produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus, species of fungi. Aflatoxin-producing members of Aspergillus are common and widespread in nature. They can colonize and contaminate grain before harvest or during storage. Host crops are particularly susceptible to infection by Aspergillus following prolonged exposure to a high-humidity environment. Aflatoxins(including AFB1, AFB2, AFG1, AFG2 )are toxic and among the most carcinogenic substances known. Aflatoxin M1 is discovered in the milk of cows that fed on moldy grain including Aflatoxins. It also affects one"s health seriously.
