A cohort of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) were generated against Staphylococcal enterotoxin-B (SEB) and selected by double sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for solution capture of the toxin. Clonal hybridoma cell lines were established and a pair of anti-SEB mAbs selected for the development of a sandwich ELISA. Immobilized 3D6 mAb (IgG1, kappa) when paired with 4C9 mAb (IgG1, kappa) conjugated to horseradish peroxidase generates a typical dose-response curve with an EC of 24.8 ng/mL for purified SEB using chemiluminescent detection. These mAbs bind SEB by Western blot and ELISA binding to classical enterotoxin serotypes show that the 3D6 mAb binds both SEB and the SEC1 serotypes, whereas 4C9 binds only SEB. These mAbs effectively port onto lateral flow test strips with a visual detection sensitivity for SEB of 5 ng/mL in <10 minutes using a 4C9 conjugated to a 40 nm gold reporter.

Name: Monoclonal antibodies in immunodiagnosis and immunotherapy
Many immunoassay platforms require time- and labor-consuming tuning of parameters for operation in complex mediums (food, whole blood, etc.), but no universal method has been proposed to accelerate th...
Protein toxins, such as botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT/A) and staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB), easily pollute food and water and are ultra-toxic to humans and animals, thus requiring a sensitive...
Dengue virus (DENV), a member of the genus Flavivirus within the family Flaviviridae, is one of the most significant mosquito-borne viruses that causing dengue fever in human. A rapid diagnostic would...
An aptamer-based colorimetric lateral flow assay was developed for the detection of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). In this study, two approaches were examined using HER2 binding apta...
Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is an interleukin that acts as both a proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine. It can be used as a potential diagnostic biomarker for sepsis. The aim of this study was to e...
The principal objective is to assess the diagnostic accuracy of the PoC assay (Genedrive, Epistem) to detect HCV RNA against the reference standard of commercial real-time polymerase chain...
The rapid and accurate detection of influenza virus in respiratory specimens is required for optimal management of patients with acute respiratory infections. Because of the variability of...
This study will evaluate the of the loop-mediated amplification assay (LAMP) as a diagnostic as well as a Test-of-Cure (ToC) for visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in an endemic area in Ethiopia....
Diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis are often delayed in hospitalized patients, leading to worse outcomes. Rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis currently relies on microscopy and molecular ...
A new enzymatic assay was developed by NMD Diagnostics for rapid diagnosis of Enteroviral CNS infection. This study will compare this assay to RT-PCR, by testing human CSF samples taken fr...
Rapid methods of measuring the effects of an agent in a biological or chemical assay. The assay usually involves some form of automation or a way to conduct multiple assays at the same time using sample arrays.
A genotoxicological technique for measuring DNA damage in an individual cell using single-cell gel electrophoresis. Cell DNA fragments assume a "comet with tail" formation on electrophoresis and are detected with an image analysis system. Alkaline assay conditions facilitate sensitive detection of single-strand damage.
A method of detection of the number of cells in a sample secreting a specific molecule. Wtih this method a population of cells are plated over top of the immunosorbent substrate that captures the secreted molecules.
Poisoning by staphylococcal toxins present in contaminated food.
Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
An assay is an analytic procedure for qualitatively assessing or quantitatively measuring the presence or amount or the functional activity of a target entity. This can be a drug or biochemical substance or a cell in an organism or organic sample. ...
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
