METHOD FOR DETECTION OF OKADAIC ACIDTOXINS GROUP IN EDIBLE MOLLUSCS Rev 4
Standard Operating Procedures method for the quantitative determination of OA and other carboxylic toxins of the OA group including DTX1, DTX2, DTX3 by a colorimetric phosphatase inhibition assay.
The OkaTest method fulfils the requirements of Chapter III A (4) a, b, and c of Annex III to Regulation (EC) 2074/2005 and can be used as supplementary method to EU-RL LC/MS/MS method only for the detection of Okadaic Acid group toxins OA, DTX1,DTX2, DTX3 including their esters.
The use of OkaTest method is not an alternative to the EU-RL LC/MS/MS method.
