Description

The BLUEGREEN TEST® is the world's first rapid diagnostic test to detect a broad range of hepatotoxins on-site. It utilizes a single-step, sandwich type, non-competitive immunocomplex assay method, using combinations of antibodies detecting molecular structures present in all common microcystins and nodularin. This combination enables the test to detect eleven commonly occurring hepatotoxins in a single test and can detect levels below 0.1 µg/L. and takes just 15 minutes to process with immediate, sensitive, and indicative results.

What is Blue Green Algae?
  • Group of organisms that are among the oldest on the planet
  • Can live in freshwater, salt-water, or in mixed "brackish" water
  • Commonly known as "pond scum"
  • Comes in many colors like red, orange, green, or brown
  • Share some characteristics of bacteria so they are being referred to as "cyanobacteria"
What is the Issue?
  • Nutrient solution caused by excess nitrogen & phosphorus in the air & water has become one of the most widespread environmental problems in America
  • Too much phosphorus & nitrogen in the air and water causes algae to grow faster than the ecosystem can handle
  • Significant increases in algae harms the water quality, food resources, habitats, & decrease oxygen supply
  • Large growths of algae blooms decreases the amount of oxygen in the water leading to fish illness or death
  • Harmful to wildlife, pets, & humans as they produce harmful toxins & bacterial growth
Possible Health Effects
  • Becoming sick when swallowing, having skin contact, or breathing airborne water droplets while swimming, boating, waterskiing & other water activities
  • Symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, rash, eye irritation, cough, sore throat, & headache
  • Symptoms generally begin with hours of exposure
Bad Effects to Animals
  • Pets such as dogs are susceptible to harmful algae because they swallow more water while swimming & doing activities that involve bodies of water
  • Animals experience symptoms within minutes of exposure to the toxins
  • Symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, difficulty breathing, & seizures
The Cyanobacteria (Blue Green Algae) Testing
  • Uses a technique based off one of the most recent & breakthrough developments in hepatotoxin detection
  • Utilizes a single-step, sandwich type, non-competitive immunocomplex assay method
  • Uses a combination of antibodies present in all common microcystins & nodularins that detect eleven commonly occurring hepatotoxins in a single test
  • Capable of detecting large groups of low molecular weight (LMW) analytes
  • Takes just 10 minutes to process with immediate, sensitive & indicative results
  • Results are directly indicative of the current state of the tested water body, as the test can be carried out in-situ directly at the source
  • Illustrates positive or negative readings via a fluorometry-based visual guide, and at the same time, indicates the concentration of detected cyanotoxins
How to Use
  1. Collect water sample
  2. Wait for 10 minutes for the result
  3. Let your pets play
NOTE: In a single test, and is able to detect levels between 1 g/L 100 g/L (with the range expandable from 0.1 g/L 20 g/L if necessary)

DISCLAIMER: The test will detect the following toxins: MC-LR, dm-MC-LR, MC-RR, dm-MC-RR, MC-LA, MC-LY, MC-LF, MC-YR, MC-WR, MC-LW, Nod-R.
