Product info


Art. No.: R5504

Intended use

RIDA®QUICK Zearalenon RQS is a quantitative immunochromatographic test in strip format for the detemination of zearalenone in corn. Results are evaluated with the RIDA®SMART APP software (Art. No. ZRSAM1000) or the RIDA®QUICK SCAN reader.

General Information

The mycotoxin zearalenone is formed by fungi of the genus Fusarium. Zearalenone is a phytohormone which displays, apart from its anabolic properties, mainly estrogenic effects. Because of its estrogenic properties, zearalenone may induce fertility disorders in animals with clinical signs of hyperestrogenism – an aspect of a disease which although reported mainly in hogs, is described in other species such as cow, horse and sheep, too. The potential health risk for humans induced by this mycotoxin, which is taken up with foods of vegetable or animal origin, is extensively discussed.


  • Reliable: High accuracy with naturally contaminated samples.
  • Sensitive: Measure from 50 to 1000 µg/kg (ppb).
  • Fast: Only 5 min incubation time.
