Sample text

Also, carbofuran granules can adhere to earthworms. /ha in-furrow application to corn; Balcomb, Bowen, Wright et al. 1984b). 7 ppm. 5 mg/kg bw for an average-sized American robin (Turdus migratorius: 77 g; Dunning 1993). 50 mg/kg bw. Given that this value is higher than most LD50 values reported for songbirds, we can conclude that a worm with an average body burden is likely to be lethal to an adult robin. The risk would obviously be greater if granules physically adhered to the worm. The risk to nestlings would also be higher because of their small body size and high food consumption rate relative to their size.

5% individuals of this species had ingested more than five granules. From a diagnostic point of view, it is interesting that no granules were found in almost one quarter of all the casualties. A study by the Bayer Corporation (Fischer and Best 1995) investigated the ingestion of blank (pesticide free) silica granules in birds. These authors found no relationship between the number of granules on the soil surface and the mean gizzard count in a group of blackbird species. Such a relationship did, however, exist for a group of sparrow species.

Sample analyte and a specially synthesised analyte-enzyme conjugate (the so-called ‘label’) are added which then compete for the limited antibody on the coated surface. In the indirect competitive format, instead of the antibody, a coating antigen is immobilised consisting of an analyte-protein conjugate. Depending on the assay format, either analyte-enzyme conjugate (direct format) or antibody (indirect format) binding to the surface-immobilised reagent occurs in inverse proportion to the amount of free analyte present in the sample.
