RIDASCREEN® T-2 Toxin is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of T-2 toxin in cereals and feed.
T-2 toxin belongs to the trichothecene group of mycotoxins and is formed by fungi of the genus Fusarium. T-2 toxin is often found in agricultural commodities, although the incidence and the concentrations found show a broad regional variation. Due to its cytotoxic and immunosuppressive mode of action T-2 toxin is a threat for human and animal health.
- Sensitive Low limits of detection.
- Flexibel Number of samples per run adjustable.
