EuroProxima Fumonisin is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of fumonisin in corn, milk, honey and serum.
Fumonisins are mycotoxins produced primarily by Fusarium moniliforme and F. proliferatum in corn. The fumonisins B1, B2, A1, A2 are a structurally closely related group of mycotoxins resembling the structure of natural sphingolipids. Fumonisins have been implicated as the causal agents in a variety of animal diseases and are epidemiologically linked to the high incidence of human oesophageal cancer in some regions in the world. Fumonisins are considered to be responsible for two distinct
diseases in animals, namely equine leucoencephalomalacia (ELEM) in horses and porcine pulmonary edema (PPE) in swine. Contamination of corn with F. moniliforme has been associated with human oesophageal cancer in the Transkey region of South Africa. Fumonisins are heat stable compounds that survive under most conditions used
during baking and frying. The maximum level in feed for animals is 5 mg/kg (5 ppm, horses), 10 mg/kg (10 ppm, swine) and 50 mg/kg (50 ppm, poultry and cattle).
