A hypotoxic immunosorbent assay for the detection of zearalenone (ZEN) was developed, by identifying a single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) aptamer with high specificity and affinity for a ZEN monoclonal antibody (mAb-ZEN). ssDNA aptamers, which could mimic ZEN epitopes, were identified using the modified systematic evolution of ligands by an exponential enrichment(More)
Mycotoxins produced by different species of fungi may coexist in single cereal and feedstuff samples, which could become highly toxic for humans and animals. In order to quantify four mycotoxins (zearalenone, fumonisin B1, deoxynivalenol, and aflatoxin B1) in cereal and feedstuff samples simultaneously, a new suspension array immunoassay was developed.(More)
Clostridium difficile is the major cause of hospital-acquired infectious diarrhea and colitis in developed countries. The pathogenicity of C. difficile is mainly mediated by the release of 2 large potent exotoxins, toxin A (TcdA) and toxin B (TcdB), both of which require neutralization to prevent disease occurrence. We have generated a novel chimeric(More)
Lateral flow immunoassays have been widely used in recent years for detection of toxins, heavy metals, and biomarkers. To improve the efficiency of individual lateral flow immunoassays, multiplex analytical strips play an important role in the detection of several important analytes. In this chapter, development of a dual lateral flow immunoassay is(More)
A novel highly sensitive chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) was developed to detect zearalenone in food samples by using both biotinylated zearalenone conjugates and gold (Au) nanoparticles labeled with streptavidin-horseradish peroxidase for signal amplification. Biotinylated zearalenone-ovalbumin conjugates and Au nanoparticles labeled with(More)
A lateral flow dual immunoassay (LFDIA) was developed for rapid quantitative detection of zearalenone (ZEN) and fumonisin B1 (FB1) in corn and wheat samples on a single test strip. Two test lines and the control line on the nitrocellulose membrane were coated with ZEN and FB1 conjugates and goat anti-mouse IgG, respectively. Colloidal gold nanoparticles(More)
