A flow-through enzyme immunoassay for the detection of Ochratoxin-A in roasted coffee.
The Ochratoxin-A (OTA) Flow-Through Rapid Test (5127OTACR) is a competitive membrane-based enzyme immunoassay for the detection of OTA in roasted coffee. The test is based on mouse monoclonal antibodies against OTA. With this kit 10 analyses can be performed. The kit contains all the reagents required to perform the tests. The cut-off value of this test is 3 µg/kg of OTA in roasted coffee.
Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a nephrotoxic and hepatocarcinogenic mycotoxin produced by Penicillium verrucosum and Penicillium viridicatum in temperate and cold climates and by a number of Aspergillus species such as A. ochraceus in warmer and tropical areas of the world. OTA has been shown to occur in various cereals and plant products such as: coffee and grapes. In the European Union the maximum limit for OTA in roasted coffee is 3 µg/kg in accordance with Commission Regulation 2022/1370.
