Commercial Test Kit
EnviroLogix Inc., of Portland, Maine, announces the first commercial ELISA test kit for rapid and affordable detection of toxins produced by so-called “toxic molds.?? These toxins, also known as mycotoxins, are produced by molds such as Stachybotrys. Until now, these toxins have required analysis by sophisticated instrumental analysis such as high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Unfortunately, HPLC analyses typically require several days to complete and often cost hundreds of dollars per test.
