ENVIROLOGIX Inc. - Environmental & Food Monitoring Kits: Pesticides

CHLORPYRIFOS (ELISA Kit)

 Intended Use 

The EnviroLogix Chlorpyrifos Plate Kit Is Designed For The Quantitative Laboratory Detection Of Chlorpyrifos Pesticide Residues In Ground And Surface Water Samples, With An Assay Range From 0.3 To 6 Parts Per Billion (Ppb).

General

 

The EnviroLogix Chlorpyrifos Plate Kit is a competitive Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA).  In the test, Chlorpyrifos pesticide residues in the sample compete with enzyme (horseradish peroxidase) labeled Chlorpyrifos for a limited number of antibody binding sites on the inside surface of the test wells.  After a simple wash step, the outcome of the competition is visualized with a colour development step.  As with all competitive immunoassays, sample concentration is inversely proportional to color development.

Darker color = Lower concentration

Lighter color = Higher concentration

The EnviroLogix Chlorpyrifos Plate Kit can be used in the following applications:

  • Source Water Protection.
  • Treated Effluent Monitoring.
  • Drinking Water Monitoring.
  • Run-Off Assessment & Monitoring.
  • Point Source Testing.
