Microcystin competitive ELISA for the quantitative analysis of microcystins in liquid samples. Format: 96-well microtiter plate (12 test strips of 8 wells), Standards: 0 | 0.10 | 0.30 | 0.80 | 2 ppb, Incubation Time: 60 Minutes

The most frequently reported cyanobacterial toxins are the hepatotoxic microcystins (MCs). MCs are peptides with a molecular weight ranging from 900 to 1,100 Da. They consist of seven amino acids of which the two terminal amino acids of the linear peptide are condensed to form a cyclic compound.

A tiered notification system which takes different actions based on different numeric thresholds for microcytin-LR concentrations in recreational waters has been developed. This is guidance that allows states to take various actions—such as posting information about harmful algal blooms (HABs), issuing a recreational public health advisory, or temporarily closing recreational waters through a no contact advisory—depending on the severity of the bloom event.

Microcystin-LR

Informational sign postings about HABs at recreational waters: < 6 μg/L
Recreational public health advisory: 6 μg/L
Elevated recreational public health advisory (e.g. no contact): 20 μg/L
