Product info

RIDASCREEN® T-2 / HT-2 Toxin

Art. No.: R3805

Intended use

RIDASCREEN® T-2 / HT-2 Toxin is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of the sum of T-2 and HT-2 toxin in oats, corn (maize), barley and wheat.

General Information

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.

Benefits:

  • Safe Water-based extraction for the frequently contaminated cereal oats.
  • Reliable Extensively tested with naturally contaminated and spiked samples.
  • EU-compliant Limits of detection below EU guidance levels.
