A highly sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of dipropyl phthalate in plastic food contact materials
A highly sensitive and specific direct competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay has been developed for the detection of dipropyl phthalate (DPrP) based on antibody-coating format. The specific polyclonal antibodies against DPrP raised in rabbits. The conjugates of the antigen with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) were used as the detectable probe. Under the optimal conditions, the limit of detection of the method was 0.01 ng/mL, and a good quantitative working range of 0.01–16 ng/mL (R 2=0.995) was obtained. The cross-reactivities of four structurally related phthalate esters were below 12% and did not interfere significantly the analysis of DPrP. The accuracy of the immunoassay has been evaluated and validated by analyzing real and spiked leachate from plastic food contact materials. The recoveries of DPrP ranged from 85.9% to 109.4%. This developed dc-ELISA was reliable, accurate and highly sensitive.
