Detection of Chlorpyrifos in Food
extensive application of Organophosphorus (OP) pesticides has caused serious
environmental and ecosystem pollution, leaving toxic residues in organisms,
water, and soil. OP residues from water can easily enter the food chain, which
can result in poisoning. Chlorpyrifos is an organophosphate pesticide. EPA
estimated that over 75% of the U.S. population has traces of chlorpyrifos in
their bodies. Chlorpyrifos exposure may lead to acute toxicity or persistent
health effects, and infants and children are more susceptible than adults to
low dose exposure, resulting in neurodevelopmental disorder and brain damage.
Diagnostics has developed an ELISA Kit to rapidly detect chlorpyrifos residues
in various food samples, including fruits, vegetables, and grains.
