A competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of okadaic acid in mussel and oyster samples.
High concentrations of shellfish toxins can accumulate in filter feeders such as clams, mussels, and oysters causing illness amongst people who eat them. One such syndrome is diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP). DSP is primarily caused by the polyether toxin okadaic acid (OA) and several analogues of OA.
The EuroProxima Okadaic Acid ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay that is validated for the screening of seafood. (Marine Biotoxin)
