Antibody-based analytical methods have been developed in a range of formats and have been shown to be effective for the rapid detection of adulteration. A review of the performance of the main species-specific immunoassays, which have been developed, has confirmed that formats such as ELISA still provide the best option for routine rapid analysis. Assays for novel adulterants that are rapid, specific and reliable can be easily developed using existing formats. Method developments that further increase sensitivity are less important for the food industry because of the frequently high concentrations of adulterants in foodstuffs. A demand for effective tests that can be operated outside of the laboratory environment has been identified. The lateral flow format appears to fulfil the demand for on-site testing, although the range of analytes to which this format can be applied needs to be extended. Recently developed nanoparticle antibody labelling methods will prove useful in achieving multi-analyte capability. The development of many additional commercial immunoassay tests is possible, however, matrix complexity warns that their use must only be recommended for foodstuffs for which they have been validated.

Current average analysis values of grass silage, along with new published NRC dairy requirements (2001), were used to determine potential major mineral and trace element deficiencies in dairy cows under typical organic production systems. The results show several potential major mineral and trace element deficiencies in both 25 litre and 30 litre producing animals under typical organic production systems. The main deficiencies highlighted were copper, zinc, iodine and selenium.
