Abstract

Florfenicol is a synthetic and broad-spectrum antibiotic and developed for veterinary use. In this study, one-step membrane-based competitive colloidal gold-based immunochromatographic formats for the rapid detection of florfenicol was developed. The quality of colloidal gold particles was monitored by UV-vis spectroscopy. For the conjugation of colloidal gold and antibody, 24 µg/mL of antibody was confirmed to the optimal amount for stabilization of colloidal gold. With the prepared colloidal gold immunochromatography test strip to determine the standard florfenicol solution, the results demonstrated a detection limit of florfenicol was approximately 1.0 µg/mL. The study showed that the strip had a high sensitivity to florfenicol and without cross-reaction for other antibiotics. The results of 80 animal samples tests confirmed that 0 sample was higher than the detection limits by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS). There was evidence to suggest that colloidal gold particles and GAB gold-labelled antibody were synthesized successfully. The prepared colloidal gold immunochromatography strip could be used for preliminary screening of florfenicol.
