Rapid Tests for Detection of Main Clostridial Toxins

Pérez-Etcheverry Diana, Lorenzo-Ferreiro Carmen


The genus Clostridium is ubiquitous,  because of this they find easily their way into wounds, foods and feeds, being the cause of serious  illness on human and domestic animals. Manifestations and pathology can range from mild food poisoning to death. Outstanding to their high toxicity, and the rapid evolution of infection with serious consequences, it is important to detect it rapidly. One approach is to have rapid detection tests to major clostridial toxins in complex matrices (blood, culture media, food and others), that can be implemented in point of care centers.

In this review, a survey of recent work is carried out in this line of research and development.
