Product Detail: The MaxSignal Okadaic Acid (DSP) ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of okadaic acid in mussels and water samples. Okadaic acid (OA) is one of the diarrheic shellfish poisons (DSP) produced by the dinoflagellate genera Dinophysis and Prorocentrum. There are a number of chemically different toxins associated with DSP. They are lipophilic and polyether compounds and can be divided into three main groups:
Acidic toxins - OA and its derivatives, dinophysistoxins (DTX1, DTX2, DTX3)
Neutral toxins - pectenotoxin group (PTXs)
Other toxins - yessotoxin (YTX) and its derivative

The MaxSignal Okadaic Acid (DSP) ELISA Test Kit a competitive colorimetric ELISA assay. The drug of interest has been coated in the plate wells. During the analysis, sample is added along with the primary antibody specific for the target drug. If the target is present in the sample, it will compete for the antibody, thereby preventing the antibody from binding to the drug attached to the well. The secondary antibody, tagged with a peroxidase enzyme, targets the primary antibody that is complexed to the drug coated on the plate wells. The resulting color intensity, after addition of substrate, has an inverse relationship with the target concentration in the sample.

Contamination of shellfish with OA has been associated with harmful algal blooms throughout the world. In humans, DSP causes dose-dependent symptoms of diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. The action level established by the FDA for OA is 0.2 ppm. The EU has established a level of 160 µg/kg of OA or its equivalents.

This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
