An improved competitive inhibition enzymatic immunoassay method for tetrodotoxin quantification


Quantifying tetrodotoxin (TTX) has been a challenge in both ecological and medical research due to the cost, time and training required of most quantification techniques. Here we present a modified Competitive Inhibition Enzymatic Immunoassay for the quantification of TTX, and to aid researchers in the optimization of this technique for widespread use with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.

Keywords: Tetrodotoxin, CIEIA, HPLC
