Exposure to microbial pathogens and their toxins through the consumption of contaminated foods is a major health problem across the world. The ability to detect such toxins is important in reducing food-borne illnesses. Currently, the accepted method to analyze several such toxins activity is an in vivo animal bioassay. Immunoassays for toxins detection speed detection and are applicable for testing large number of samples. However, these assays cannot distinguish between the active form of the toxin, which poses a threat to life and the inactive form. Our study reports the successful use of an enzymatic assay as a fast, simple, inexpensive activity assay as an alternative to animal bioassays for the detection of clostridium botulinum neurotoxin, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli and staphylococcal entrotoxin.
