RIDA®QUICK DON RQS ECO is a quantitative immunochromatographic test with water extraction in a test strip format to determine DON in grains (wheat, corn, barley, oats). Results are evaluated with the RIDA®SMART APP software (Art. No. ZRSAM1000) or the RIDA®QUICK SCAN reader.
DON is a trichothecene mycotoxin. It is produced by fungi in the Fusarium genus. DON can be found in plant products and grains in particular. DON is the most prevalent toxin of the more than 100 known trichothecenes in Europe and North America.
