Abstract:

Phagocytic index may be used for the detection of the botulinum toxin of types A and B in the food products, along with the biological test. Botulinum toxins may be detected with the aid of the phagocytic index during an investigation of various canned goods. With the aid of the reaction of phagocytosis considerably smaller quantities of the botulinum toxins may be revealed than with the aid of a biological test therefore, the latter must be considered less sensitive as compared with the method of the phagocytic index determination.
