Hen egg is one of the most frequent causes of food allergy in infants and adults. Ovalbumin (OVA) has been identified as a major egg allergen. In order to detect OVA in foods, a highly sensitive sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) based on two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) was established. The 2 mAbs were selected out of 17 murine hybridomas secreting OVA-specific antibody. Using mAb17 as the capture antibody and mAb15 as the detection antibody, the detection limit of the ELISA method was 0.51 ng/mL, and the linear dynamic range was between 1.95 and 500 ng/mL. The recovery ranged from 85.6 to 115.2%, whereas the intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation were less than 8.6 and 13.9%, respectively. Sample analysis verified that the produced anti-OVA mAb and the developed ELISA may provide a valuable tool for the sensitive determination of OVA in processed foods and for future studies on the mechanism of how OVA functions in anaphylaxis.
