Product info


Art. No.: R5602

Intended use

RIDASCREEN®FAST Fumonisin is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of fumonisin in cereals and feed.

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 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.


  • Optimal for a fast and reproduceable fumonisin determination.
  • Up to 43 samples can be tested in one run.
