BALLYA Pentachlorophenol Testis manufactured by BALLYA, it’s rapid test for detection the content of pentachlorophenol in grains, food and seafood, especially in grains and food. Lateral flow assay test base on the gold immunochromatography assay technology.
Pentachlorophenol (PCP) is an important preservative. It can prevent the growth of fungi and inhibit the corrosion of bacteria. It has been used for a long time as an anti-mold agent for leather and wood, and it can prevent mold and common insects (Such as termites) are effective, and its sodium salt is used to eliminate the intermediate host of snails and control barnyard grass.
Characteristics of Pentachlorophenol
Pentachlorophenol (PCP for short) is white flakes or crystalline solid. It often contains one molecule of crystal water and has a strong pungent odor when it is hot.
Hardly soluble in water, solubility (20℃) 20-25 mg/L, soluble in most organic solvents such as ethanol, ether, benzene, etc., slightly soluble in cold petroleum ether, but not very soluble in carbon tetrachloride and paraffin.
When dissolved in water, it generates corrosive hydrochloric acid gas; the industrial product is gray-black powder or flake solid, with a melting point of 187-189 °C, and a boiling point of about 309-310 °C (decomposition).
What is Pentachlorophenol used for?
Main uses of pentachlorophenol
1. Pentachlorophenol can be used as herbicide, insecticide, fungicide, algicide, disinfectant and antifouling paint for raw materials.
2. It can also be used as a standard for organic synthesis and pesticide residue analysis.
3. Controlling barnyardgrass and wood preservation in rice fields. It is also a widely used antifungal agent with high sterilization effect. It is suitable for polyvinyl chloride and other plastics, coatings, leather, adhesives, rubber, fiber, paper, etc. The general dosage is 0.1-0.5%. It is also effective for the prevention and control of termites and snails.
What is the harm of Pentachlorophenol?
What is the harm of Pentachlorophenol?
Health hazards: This product can cause abnormal hyperactivity of the body's basal metabolism and high fever.
Generally, it is caused by a large amount of skin absorption or mistaking, and it mostly occurs in summer. Frequently, fatigue, hyperhidrosis, polydipsia, dizziness, headache, palpitations, fever around 38 ℃, may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and so on.
The condition suddenly worsened within a few hours, with high fever (above 40 °C), profuse sweating, extreme fatigue, irritability, coma, muscle tonic spasm, circulatory failure, and heart, liver, and kidney damage. Can be fatal.
Irritating to eyes and upper respiratory tract. Can cause dermatitis.
Environmental threats of pentachlorophenol
Metabolism and degradation: Pentachlorophenol is not oxidized and difficult to hydrolyze under normal conditions, but it is easily photodegraded and biodegraded. In the soil suspension solution, pentachlorophenol broke 100% of the ring within 47 days and released carbon dioxide.
Residue and accumulation: Pentachlorophenol has an accumulation effect, and its concentration in organisms far exceeds its concentration in water. It has high adsorption on acidic soils or sediments with high organic content.
Migration and transformation: It can enter the food chain through bioaccumulation, can be strongly absorbed in the soil, and absorbed by plants. Pentachlorophenol has low volatility and is difficult to move through the air. Under alkaline medium and high temperature conditions, pentachlorophenol fertilizer produces octachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin. Although it is not highly toxic to animals, it is quite stable.

What specimen can be detected by BALLYA Pentachlorophenol Test?
Specimen include: all kinds of grains, food and seafood. Widely used in feed industry and food processing industry. You can choose the right products according to your needs.
Significance of testing Pentachlorophenol
To protect the animal have health feed, food, seafood and medicine, avoid contaminated food. The excess pentachlorophenol is harmful for animal being, can’t take too much in the body.
1. Take some grain or food specimen 2. Add the supernatant to cassette 3. Wait for 15 minutes to result 4. The details of operation, refer to the kit instruction
Limitations of BALLYA Pentachlorophenol Test?
BALLYA Pentachlorophenol Test is a qualitative test kit. It’s only for screening purpose. If have positive cases or suspected case, maybe use other detection method to make a further detection, such as, ELISA, PCR, qPCR, etc.
BALLYA Pentachlorophenol Test is suitable for the detection of pentachlorophenol residues in grain, food and seafood. Simple operation, high accuracy and short detection time are the characteristics of this product.
It can be widely used in food and drug administration, health departments, higher education institutions, scientific research institutes, agricultural departments, animal husbandry and veterinarians, breeding farms, slaughterhouses, food and meat products deep processing enterprises, inspection and quarantine departments and other units.
