Fumonisin

Fumonisins are carcinogenic, neuro, hepato and pneumo toxic metabolites of Fusarium moniliforme, a host-specific mold fungi which grows on corn.

The dose of fumonisin for the release of toxic effects differs significantly depending on the animal species. A concentration of approx. 5 – 10 mg/kg fumonisin in feed induces neuro toxic effects in horses. In pigs the ingestion of 4 – 16 mg/kg body weight may result in liver cirrhosis and more than 16 mg/kg body weight may lead to pulmonary edema. Chickens tolerate higher concentrations of fumonisin in feed, up to 75 mg/kg. Cattle seem to be insensitive to high fumonisin concentrations. We offer different analytical platforms for the analysis of fumonisins as well as standards and reference materials.
