The Aflatoxin 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 of the membrane for Aflatoxin antibody-dyed conjugate. Since the drug is present in the sample, it will compete with the drug immobilized on T line for the limited amount of dye-antibody. As a sufficient amount of drug in the sample is present 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 an obvious line on T section.
Aflatoxins are naturally occurring mycotoxins that are produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus, species of fungi. 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 a prolonged exposure to a high-humidity environment. Aflatoxins (including AFB1, AFB2, AFG1, AFG2) are toxic and among the most carcinogenic substances known.
