RIDASCREEN®FAST Fumonisin ECO
Art. No.: R5603
RIDASCREEN®FAST Fumonisin ECO is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of fumonisin in corn and feed.
Fumonisins are carcinogenic, neuro-, hepato- and pneumotoxic metabolites of Fusarium moniliforme, a mould fungi, which grows host-specific on corn.
The toxic concentrations of fumonisin differ 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 bw. 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.
