Impact/Purpose:

The purpose of this study was to adapt and evaluate the Botulinum Toxin Enzyme Linked Immunosorbant Assay (ELISA) (13) and Endopep-MS (3, 16) for use with drinking water samples. A further purpose of this study was to investigate the ability to concentrate toxin from large volumes of water (100-L) using ultrafiltration (UF) was evaluated in order to analyze otherwise undetectable levels of toxin.
