Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin that may be contained at low concentrations in milk and dairy products can cause food poisoning. To detect this enterotoxin at low concentrations, samples should be concentrated. We evaluated the performance of centrifugal ultrafiltration method (UF) in comparison with trichloroacetic acid precipitation method (TCA) for the concentration of S. aureus enterotoxin in milk and dairy products. S. aureus enterotoxin A (SEA) were added at various concentrations to ultra high-temperature heating process (UHT) milk, UHT concentrated skim milk, UHT skim milk powder, low heat-treated (LH) skim milk powder, and raw milk. SEA was concentrated by TCA and UF once a day on a total of 3 days by different researchers to prepare test solutions. The fluorescence value (TV) of test solutions was determined using an immunofluorescence autoanalyzer (miniVIDAS), and the linearity and slope of the regression line, relative standard deviation (RSD(RW)) at each added concentration, detection limit (DL), quantification limit (QL), and the recovery rate by each concentration method were obtained according to the guidelines of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH). The slope of the regression line obtained by UF was steeper than that by TCA for all dairy samples excluding LH (74 degrees C, 20 s) skim milk powder. RSDRW, DL, and QL obtained by UF were comparable to or more excellent than those obtained by TCA. The procedure of UF was simpler than that of TCA. The recovery rate and rapidity were similar between the two methods. The DL and QL of enterotoxins other than SEA in dairy products by UF or TCA were estimated based on the DL and QL of SEA. In this estimation, consideration was given to reactions between each enterotoxin and its antibody, and also to the immunoactivity maintenance rate of each enterotoxin after addition of trichloroacetic acid in TCA. The estimated values were similar to those obtained by experiments using enterotoxin C1 (SEC1). UF using a centrifugal ultrafiltration membrane can be more readily performed and similar to or more reliable than TCA. UF combined with a miniVIDAS can be used for quantitative routine analysis.
