RIDA®QUICK Fumonisin RQS ECO is a quantitative immunochromatographic strip test with an aqueous extraction method for the detection of fumonisin in corn. Results are evaluated with the RIDA®SMART APP software (Art. No. ZRSAM1000) or the RIDA®QUICK SCAN reader.
Fumonisins are carcinogenic, highly toxic metabolites of Fusarium moniliforme, which grows hostspecificly on corn. The doses of fumonisin sufficient to induce toxic effects differ significantly depending on the animal species.
- Fast: Optimal to generate rapid quantitative results with minimal lab equipment in a few minutes.
- Water-extraction: No organic solvents needed. The extraction is carried out with a water-based extraction buffer (buffer concentrate included).
- Cost-effective: No extra costs for organic solvent purchase and disposal.
- Unique: the only fumonisin test that can be evaluated by a smartphone app, the RIDA®SMART APP.
