RIDA®QUICK T-2 / HT-2 RQS ECO is a immunochromatographic test in strip format for the quantitative determination of the sum of T-2 / HT-2 toxin in oats, wheat and corn (maize). Results are evaluated with the RIDA®SMART APP software (Art. No. ZRSAM1000) or the RIDA®QUICK SCAN reader.
T-2 and HT-2 toxin belong to the trichothecene group of mycotoxins and are formed by fungi of the genus Fusarium. T-2 and HT-2 toxin are often found in agricultural commodities, although the incidence and the concentrations found show a broad regional variation. Due to their high cytotoxic and immunosuppressive mode of action T-2 / HT-2 toxins are a threat for human and animal health.
- Exceptionally wide detection range.
- Optimal to determine T-2/HT-2 toxin in raw materials within minutes.
- Extraction with aqueous buffer (concentrate included), no organic solvents needed.
There are no extra costs for the purchase of organic solvents and their disposal.
