IMMUNOPREP® ONLINE immunoaffinity cartridges are used in conjunction with the online handling systems RIDA®CREST and RIDA®CREST ICE.
Each system combines automated online sample preparation with quantitative analysis of mycotoxins. The automated handling systems are ideal for laboratories carrying out routine mycotoxin analysis and running large numbers of samples every day. Connect your detector of choice to the RIDA®CREST for automated mycotoxin analysis and save time and money, increasing your sample throughput. Alternatively, the RIDA®CREST ICE is connected to the customers own HPLC, UHPLC or LC-MS/MS systems. In both cases, the use of the automated system has the added benefit of standardising and harmonising methods.
The innovative RIDA®CREST systems enable the online cartridges to be incorporated directly online with an HPLC, UHPLC or LC-MS/MS system. The fully automated analysis system can process up to 12 samples before the cartridge is automatically removed and replaced with a new one.
Following extraction and filtration, the sample is placed in an autosampler vial. The diluted sample is then injected into the online immunoaffinity cartridge which contains a specific monoclonal antibody. After washing and elution, the sample is quantitatively analysed for the mycotoxin of interest. The instrument is capable of processing two cartridges simultaneously.
The system is suitable for the analysis of legislated mycotoxins in food and feed. It has been validated in a number of independent laboratories for the routine monitoring of aflatoxin, aflatoxin M1, ochratoxin and deoxynivalenol in a wide variety of commodities.
