Indonesian coffee and cocoa commodities are constrained by low product quality problem due to contamination of fungal metabolites which producing ochratoxin A (OTA). Ochratoxin is neprotoxic, immunogenic, carcinogenic and teratogenic to the human health. Early detection method on site detection should be developed because of those negative effects. The aim of this study was to produce antibody to develop a method for OTA detection. Antibody was produced by immunization of egg laying hen. Antibody-produced was sepatared and analyzed using ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) and DBIA (dot blot immunoassay),and tested its composition using HPLC and SDS PAGE. The results showed that anti-OTA polyclonal antibodies had been obtained already from chicken eggs in the 4th period (7 weeks after initial immunization). These antibodies showed anti-OTA reactivity by DBIA method and still showed anti-OTA reactivity up to 9th period (12 weeks after initial immunization). The anti-BSA antibodies produced should be removed to increase the sensitivity of antibodies againts ochratoxin A. The separation of BSA antibodies can be conducted by the absorption of the protein.
