Hi all,

One of my DNR colleagues passed this along.  He notes, “Recent ES&T article on a newly developed ELISA test for Triclosan. This makes analysis much more affordable.”

Detection of the Antimicrobial Triclosan in Environmental Samples by Immunoassay

A sensitive, competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of the antimicrobial triclosan (TCS; 2,4,4′-trichloro-2′-hydroxydiphenyl ether) was developed. Using the most sensitive assay combination, TCS concentrations were measured in water samples following dilution. Biosolid samples were analyzed following the dilution of a simple solvent extract. The immunoassay results were similar to those determined by LC-MS/MS. This immunoassay can be used as a rapid and convenient tool to screen for human and environmental exposure.
