Abstract In collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture and a number of major milling companies, the “Insect-Detect” immunoassay for analyzing insect contamination in grains has been compared with three more traditional methods, X-ray analysis, cracking and flotation, and the insect fragment test (IFT). Testing was carried out in blind fashion using clean wheat samples that were spiked with differing numbers of grain kernels infested with late instar larvae of the granary… CONTINUE READING
