Abstract

Two “turn-on” pattern fluorescence-quenching lateral flow immunochromatographic assays (FLFIAs) based on carbon dot (CD)/silver nanoparticle (AgNP) and quantum dot (QD)/gold nanoparticle (AuNP) fluorescence quenching systems were developed for the specific and rapid detection of enrofloxacin (ENR) in animal-derived food. The visual cut-off values were 0.1 μg L−1 ENR for CD/AgNP-based FLFIA (C-FLFIA) and 0.25 μg L−1 ENR for QD/AuNP-based FLFIA (Q-FLFIA). Meanwhile, the cut-off values were 5 μg L−1 ENR for a traditional AgNP-based lateral flow immunochromatographic assay (Ag-LFIA) and 10 μg L−1 ENR for AuNP-based LFIA (Au-LFIA). In spiked and procured animal-derived food samples (crucian, perch, pork, beef, chicken, and milk), the cut-off values were 0.5–1 μg kg −1 (μg L−1) ENR for C-FLFIA and 1.25–2.5 μg kg−1 (μg L−1) for Q-FLFIA. The cut-off values of the two assays are much lower than the maximum limits of ENR set by standardization agencies around the world.
