Assay screens juice and honey for carbendazim

THE QUANTITATIVE analysis of carbendazim in juice and honey samples is made easier through the use of Bioo Scientific’s latest Elisa (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), the MaxSignal Carbendazim kit.

Kit screens foodstuffs for the fungicide carbendazim

The kit was developed in response to the US Food and Drug Administration’s announcement that it is increasing its testing requirement for carbendazim which has been found in orange juice. Carbendazim is a fungicide used in agriculture, and is not approved for use on citrus in the USA. It is however used in Brazil and other countries that export orange juice to the United States.

The MaxSignal Carbendazim Elisa test kit offers include a rapid organic reagent-free extraction method with carbendazim recovery rates of 80-95%. With sensitivity of 0.5ppb and a 1ppb detection limit, Bioo says this kit was designed to offer sensitive, affordable, and rapid screening.

This kit is the latest addition to the MaxSignal range for the screening of food and feed samples for contaminants.
