Art. No.: R3411

Intended use

RIDASCREEN® Fumonisin ECO is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of fumonisin in corn and feed.
Please note: it will replace the previous test kit RIDASCREEN® Fumonisin (Art. No. R3401) soon.

General Information

Fumonisins are carcinogenic, neuro-, hepato- and pneumotoxic metabolites of molds produced by some Fusarium species. The doses of fumonisin sufficient to induce toxic effects differ significantly depending on the animal species. A concentration of approx. 5 – 10 mg/kg (ppm) fumonisin in feed induces neurotoxic 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.
