In general, several instrumental analytical methods (i.e., TLC, HPLC, CE-MS, LC-MS, MS-MS) of chromatography and rapid detection approaches of ELISA and FLA formats have been widely developed and proved to be sensitive and reliable for diverse occasions and purposes. In the recent decade, there is a still increasing interest in developing new strategic platforms which are simple, portable, disposable, and inexpensive, enabling to rapidly and simultaneously detect the target analytes in the fields of clinical diagnosis, environmental monitoring, and food safety control. Especially, those expected detection formats are extremely useful and highly welcome in remote settings, with high specificity and affinity to the target molecules showing more prospective to fulfill the above objective for these typed rapid analysis, which had been proved to be applicable for detecting clinical diseases and for monitoring environmental and food-based mycotoxins. We here propose some schematic immunoassay via a chromogenic platform-based FLA, attaining to the abovementioned expectations regarding developing ideal rapid tests of mycotoxins, especially for large-scale monitoring for industrial uses.
