The Simple Solution to "Hook Effect" Concerns...
the RAID 8 with the RAID TOX
(Compatible with Federal sampling
What's so new about the
addresses concerns about over sampling. For HHA toxin tests in particular, too much sample can result in
the "hook effect" or an antigen excess
saturation. In short, when there is a vast
excess of toxin (or antigen), a one-step HHA
potentially can produce false-negative
results. Essentially, the excess antigen
saturates and overwhelms the ability of the test
to form the test line which normally would
indicate the presence of the toxin.
RAID DX is an elegant solution to this concern. We have combined in a
single package, the RAID 8 and RAID TOX with
our convenient All-in-One Collection swabs.
Operation is surprisingly simple:
Sample your unknown into a Collection swab,
Run the RAID 8,
Serial dilute the first sample into the
second collection swab,
Run the RAID TOX,
Read the results!
In 15 minutes
or less you have screened your unknown and run a
second diluted sample across the toxin target test
to ensure against antigen excess. This procedure
comports with federal collection recommendations and
eliminates the need for extra tubes, eye droppers,
pipettes and buffer bottles.
What if I already have purchased the RAID 5 or
RAID 8 kits?
No problem, you can order RAID TOX kits
separately to supplement your existing RAID

Looking to train your team on the proper use of HHA's?
RAID™has available a complete set of training tools,
designed to mimic the performance characteristics of the
RAID™ 5 and RAID™ 8 test devices. Designed to replicate the
actual performance characteristics of the RAID™ 5 biothreat
detection kit. RAID™ trainers allow the instructor to
provide hands-on training to the student demonstrating the
proper use of hand-held assays (HHA's) without exposure to
live agents. In return, the student learns valuable insight
to how HHA's perform in a real world environment, safely and
effectively. RAID™ trainers are pre-programmed to the
instructor's requirements, providing a positive result for
any one of the 5 biothreats he or she may be illustrating to
the class. B. anthracis, Ricin toxin, Botulinum toxin,
