RIDASCREEN® Fumonisin

Art. No.: R3401

Intended use

RIDASCREEN® Fumonisin is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of fumonisin in corn and corn products (corn flour, corn, semolina, polenta, corn for popcorn).

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.

Benefits:

  • The low detection limit of this tests allows to also identify low fumonisin concentrations.
  • Up to 42 samples can be tested in double-determination.
