MAIA Pesticide MultiTest

Colorimetric system for the detection of organophosphate,organochloride and carbamate pesticides residuesin soil, water, food and drink The method of Acetylcholinesterase – Microplate Acetylcholinesterase Inhibition Assay (MAIA, ref. 79700) – for the detection of organophosphate, organochloride and carbamate pesticides residues in hydro-acetonitrilic extracts of solid/liquid food matrices is based on testing in microtitre plates of Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity inhibition by pesticide molecules, that belong to 3 important families.MAIA is a rapid semiquantitative analytic screening method.The AChE is preincubated with the desiccated extract to accentuate the pesticide's inhibition effect on AChE, if present in the food matrix in examination. Afterwards, the enzyme-extract system is integrated with an appropriate reaction substratum (acetylthiocholine) and with a chromogenic detector for thiocoline that has developed.
