Microcystins/Nodularins PP2A (EPA ETV), Plate 96 tests
Microcystins/Nodularins PP2A Kit is an enzymatic test for the detection of microcystins and nodularins in water. A simple and rapid method that allows to quantify whether the toxin concentration is over the maximum allowed levels. Microcystins/Nodularins PP2A Kit is based on the phosphatase activity inhibition by microcystins. Under normal conditions the phophatase is able to hydrolyze a specific substrate that can be detected at 405 nm. Samples containing microcystins will inhibit the enzyme activity proportionally to the amount of toxin contained in the sample. The concentration of the toxin in the sample can be calculated using a standard curve.
