An immunochromatographic assay for the determination of bisphenol a releases from plastic materials

  • Background. The worldwide increase in the use of bisphenol A (BPA), a monomer commonly used to manufacture polycarbonate plastic products and the epoxy resins that line metal cans, has resulted in an increased human exposure because both products come in contact with food and beverages. Since BPA is an endocrine disruptor excessive exposure could affect human reproductive function. In response, various countries have adopted a range of measures, from voluntary reductions to outright bans of BPA in some products, mostly in baby bottles and containers for canned foods. Nonetheless, consumers would certainly appreciate a quick test for their own assessment of contaminations by bisphenol A. Methods. An immunochromatographic test strip was developed. This lateral-flow immunoassay (LFIA) is based on anti-BPA antibodies (from mouse) conjugated with gold nanoparticles as the marker, deposited in an elaborate pad. To form control and test zones, anti-mouse antibody and a BPA-BSA conjugateBackground.

This lateral-flow immunoassay (LFIA) is based on anti-BPA antibodies (from mouse) conjugated with gold nanoparticles as the marker, deposited in an elaborate pad. To form control and test zones, anti-mouse antibody and a BPA-BSA conjugate were spotted on the nitrocellulose membrane, respectively. Results. Negative samples are revealed by red lines both in the test and control zones, respectively, whereas positive samples produce a single red line only in the control zone. The limit of detection (LOD) was found to be 0.05 µg/l, visually detected by the naked eye within 5 minutes. In addition, the intensities at the test line can be read by dedicated lateral flow readers (opTrilyzer® and Cube by opTricon, Berlin) for a more precise and documented determination. Conclusion. Pregnancy-test like strips in combination with hand-held readers provide a simple and versatile tool to determine the presence of bisphenol A quantitatively, making it a very attractive analytical approach especially for on-site applications at critical points, such as environmental analysis, consumer protection, and materials testing.zeige mehrzeige weniger
