Immunodiagnostic methods for OTA in coffee and in wine

Immunodiagnostic methods for OTA in coffee: The methods of analysis to be employed for the detection of ochratoxin A are not specified by the EU legislation. Antibodies to OTA were produced and assays with a greater sensitivity than those currently available were developed. These antibodies were successfully incorporated into a rapid one step LFD assay, one application of this assay is the rapid detection of ochratoxin A in coffee.

Immunodiagnostic methods for OTA in wine: Antibodies to OTA were produced and assays with a greater sensitivity than those currently available were developed. These antibodies were successfully incorporated into a rapid one step LFD assay, one application of this assay is the rapid detection of ochratoxin A in wine.
