An immunochromatographic test strip based on gold colloid was developed to quickly identify vitellogenin(VTG) induction in fish in field waters. The results indicated that the immunochromatographic test strip could perform the analysis with 100 mu L plasma in 15min. The limit of detection (LODVIG)of the immunochromatographic test strip was 10 mu g center dot mL(-1) and the accuracy reached 92%. Therefore, it is proposed that the test strip can be a primary means for in situ assessing the effect of xenoestrogen exposure.
