Jellett Rapid Testing Ltd.
In Vitro Shellfish Test (MIST™)
Jellett Biotek Ltd. has developed innovative rapid tests for detecting marine biotoxins. In collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada a rapid test for paralytic shellfish poisoning was developed.
Alert™ for PSP
The MIST Alert™ for PSP has the following possible applications:
Test available for the following:
Biotek Limited (JBL) is a biotechnology company located in Dartmouth,
Nova Scotia, Canada, that develops and manufactures diagnostic test
kits to test for marine biotoxins. In collaboration with the National
Research Council of Canada, Institute for Marine Biosciences, JBL recently
achieved a technological breakthrough leading to the development of
rapid screening tests for PSP.
JBL has also developed a rapid test for amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP or domoic acid). The new MIST Alert™ tests are qualitative (yes/no) tests that provide a visual determination of the presence of toxicity in shellfish samples in about 10 minutes. MIST Alert™ tests may be used in regulatory laboratories to screen shellfish samples, but are simple enough to be used in the field as a harvest management tool to determine a safe time to harvest and as a quality control tool in processing plants to ensure incoming shellfish are free of toxins.
JBL also offers consulting services in marine biology and provides testing for sea urchin diseases. We seek research collaborations for new product development.
