Development of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of glyphosate.

A competitive indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (CI-ELISA) was developed to quantitate the herbicide glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine] in water. The ELISA has a detection limit of 7.6 microg mL(-1) and a linear working range of 10-1000 microg mL(-1) with an IC(50) value of 154 microg mL(-1). The glyphosate polyclonal antisera did not cross… CONTINUE READING
