The hapten atrazine was detected under continuous flow conditions using a micro-column which contained immobilized monoclonal antibodies (Ab) against atrazine and atrazine labeled with alkaline phosphatase (An*). The equilibrium of the antibody-hapten system, was achieved by a continuous flow of the tracer An* through the micro-column containing the immobilized antibodies. The activity of the tracer was monitored continuously, after the micro-column, by an amperometric detector using p-hydroquinone phosphate as substrate. When pulses of unlabeled atrazine (An) were added to the An* flowing continuously through the micro-column, An* bound to the antibody was displaced, with a consequent change of the detector signal. By this method atrazine concentrations in the range 9-180 mu g/l were monitored under conditions of continuous operation. Since the equilibrium condition for the system Ab-An* was continuously restored by the flow of An* through the micro-column the regeneration of the antibody was not required.

Abstract

The hapten atrazine was detected under continuous flow conditions using a micro-column which contained immobilized monoclonal antibodies (Ab) against atrazine and atrazine labeled with alkaline phosphatase (An*). The equilibrium of the antibody-hapten system, was achieved by a continuous flow of the tracer An* through the micro-column containing the immobilized antibodies. The activity of the tracer was monitored continuously, after the micro-column, by an amperometric detector using p-hydroquinone phosphate as substrate. When pulses of unlabeled atrazine (An) were added to the An* flowing continuously through the micro-column, An* bound to the antibody was displaced, with a consequent change of the detector signal. By this method atrazine concentrations in the range 9-180 mu g/l were monitored under conditions of continuous operation. Since the equilibrium condition for the system Ab-An* was continuously restored by the flow of An* through the micro-column the regeneration of the antibody was not required.
