RIDA®QUICK Aflatoxin RQS is a quantitative immunochromatographic test in strip format for the determination of aflatoxin in corn. Results are evaluated with the RIDA®SMART APP software (Art. No. ZRSAM1000) or the RIDA®QUICK SCAN reader.
Aflatoxins are secondary metabolites of the fungi species Aspergillus flavus, parasiticus and nomius. These fungi occur in humid tropical areas and the contamination of agricultural products takes place in the cultivable countries. Aflatoxins belong to the strongest natural occurring cancerogenic substances.
