1-Standard DON is an ELISA test for the quantitative determination of Deoxynivalenol (DON) in grains, cereals and animal feed. The test provides a cost-effective, and reliable solution to the analyst, including only the standard 1 (zero standard) in the kit.
1-Standard ELISA series is a new innovative ELISA system, using a precalibrated curve for the quantification of mycotoxins in only 5 minutes. Unlike the regular ELISA protocol that needs to have several standards for an accurate quantification method, the 1-standard ELISA requires only the first (analyte free) standard.
The main advantage of the regular ELISA is that small or sometimes bigger variations of the individual experiment (time delays or temperature variations) are the same both for the standards as well as for the samples, minimizing their impact on the results. For this reason, the 1-standard ELISA series still uses the analyte free standard in order to provide the same advantage in terms of accuracy. The precalibrated standard curve has been run multiple times in ProGnosis Biotech facilities and following thorough examinations and validations it is unique for every lot and it can be downloaded on Prognosis Data reader. When a user wants to analyze one sample, with the 1-Standard ELISA only two ELISA wells are needed, instead of 6 (or even more) with the regular ELISA.
