A number of studies have shown the effects of passive smoke on the respiratory, circulatory, and immune systems of children and adults. In order to be able to correlate the health status of individuals specifically with exposure to tobacco smoke, it has become important to have an assay capable of detecting nanogram amounts of cotinine, the major metabolite of nicotine. Cotinine in body fluids has been identified as a reliable indicator of exposure to second hand smoke.
Neogen’s Cotinine forensic drug detection assay is a competitive immunoassay utilizing ELISA technology to provide a spectrophotometric indicator of the amount of cotinine in samples of saliva, blood and other body fluids.
For the determination of trace quantities of cotinine in undiluted human serum. This kit was designed for screening purposes and is intended for forensic use only. Contact a Neogen representative for information on other matrices.
