New kit to detect chemicals in fish in 3 seconds

Thoppumpadi: Two women scientists of Central Institute of Fisheries Technology (CIFT) has developed a technology to find out fish adulteration. The ‘Formalin Detection Kit for Fresh Fish’ require only 3 seconds to detect the presence of chemicals in fish. The detection kit contains a small strip, which is to be pressed on to the fish. After that, add a drop of a chemical solution to the strip. If the fish is adulterated, the colour of the strip will change within 3 seconds. The adulterated fish cannot be identified easily. The adulterants commonly used in fish are formalin and ammonia, which preserve the fish for more days.
