RIDA®QUICK T-2 / HT-2 RQS is a quantitative immunochromatographic test in strip format for the detection of T-2 / HT-2 toxin in oats, wheat and corn (maize). Evaluation is performed by RIDA®QUICK SCAN or RIDA® SMART APP.
The RIDA®QUICK T-2 / HT-2 RQS test is capable of detecting T-2 / HT-2 toxin contaminations of 50 – 800 μg/kg or 500 – 8,000 μg/kg if test strip evaluation is performed with the RIDA®QUICK SCAN reader. T-2 / HT-2 toxin contaminations can be detected in the range of >= 50 – 1000 μg/kg or 1000 – 10000 μg/kg when evaluating with the RIDA®SMART APP.
The RIDA®QUICK T-2 / HT-2 RQS test detects T-2 / HT-2 toxin in oats, wheat and corn (maize) samples. The test has been validated for these matrices.
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.
