Although polyclonal antisera have been used for immunodiagnostic measurement of aldicarb, both as components of commercial kits and as stand-alone products, no monoclonal antibody (MAb) reactive to this carbamate pesticide has yet been described. We have generated two MAbs with specificity to aldicarb, which function in our prototypic field immunoassays to identify this chemical in water samples. Further exploitation of these inherently stable immunoreagents should be valuable for point-of-need testing for the presence of aldicarb.
