An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was established for the detection of zearalenone by using monoclonal antibodies produced by Z-M-26 hybridoma cells when injected into a mouse and zearalenone-oxime-OV A conjugate. Zearalenone-oxime-OV A conjugates were diluted with carbonyl buffer, coated to 96 well microtiter plates at $4^{\circ}C$ overnight and blocked with 1% BSA overnight. One thousand times diluted antibody solution together with standard zearalenone or sample was added to 96-well microtiter plates and stood overnight. A secondary antibody conjugated with HRP was added and an hour later, enzyme substrate (TMBZ) solution was added for color develpment. Mter 30 minutes, coloring reaction was terminated by adding 2 N $H_2S0_4$ and the O.D. was measured at 450 nm. Detection range of this method was about 0.1~100 ppb. The established indirect competitive ELISA method was suitable for a rapid and effective analysis of zearalenone in agricultural products.
