The MaxSignal Melamine ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of melamine in milk, milk powder, infant formula, meat, fish, feed, chocolate and other food/dairy samples. Melamine is a chemical used in a variety of industrial processes and can be found in food contact surfaces in processing plants, can coatings and dishware and other kitchenware. Sometimes it is also used illegally to increase the apparent protein content in food samples such as milk. Trace amounts of melamine can contaminate food by contact without causing health problems but it is toxic at high levels. In 2010, WHO has set the first global limits on permitted melamine levels in food. The 130 members of the Codex Alimentarius Commission set the threshold for melamine in food at 2.5mg/kg (2.5 ppm) and the permitted level for infant formula milk was set at 1mg/kg (1 ppm). BENEFITS:- High recovery rate (>80%) Rapid (10 - 40 minutes) and cost-effective extraction methods Sample prep protocols that work with chocolate Robust sample prep protocols for feed samples High sensitivity (5 ng/g or ppb) and low detection limit for liquid milk (0.2 ppm) A quick ELISA assay (less than 2 hours regardless of number of samples) High reproducibility
