    J Food Prot 67:203-6. 2004
    ..The mouse bioassay is more sensitive than the ELISA but usually requires multiple assays to obtain the toxin type and toxicity. Type A culture isolates from the sample were also verified using one ELISA method...
  2. ncbi request reprint Detection of botulinal neurotoxins A, B, E, and F by amplified enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay: collaborative study
    Joseph L Ferreira
    U S Food and Drug Administration, 60 8th St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309, USA
    J AOAC Int 86:314-31. 2003
    ..The amp-ELISA could be used to screen suspect cultures for botulinal toxins. Positive amp-ELISA samples would be confirmed by the AOAC reference method...

    J AOAC Int 84:85-8. 2001
    ..Purified botulinal toxins were also assayed using these 2 methods. The sensitivity of the amp-ELISA using purified neurotoxins was about 0.1 ng/mL for types A, B, and E and about 1.0 ng/mL for type F...
