The principle of the GT-Test kit is based on measuring the inhibition of the enzyme cholinesterase. Some pesticides e.g. organophosphorus and carbamates inhibit this enzyme. The GT-test kit is capable of detecting whether or not substances in the sample inhibit the enzyme.
The GT-test kit is very easy to use and can be carried out anywhere e.g. on markets. The results are produced very rapid (few hours) and at a very low price. No expensive instruments are used.
Pesticides Rapid test kit (carbamate and Organophosphate group) Pesticides and insecticides are poisonous agents limited for agricultural use only. Target sample fresh vegetable and fruit, salted fish
consumption of food contained pesticide residue can cause weakness, low immunity. Obtaining high concentration of pesticides can cause dizziness, vomiting, dyspnea, and cardiac arrest.
