Intended use:
RIDASCREEN® Fumonisin is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of fumonisin residues in corn and corn products.

General information:
Fumonisins are carcinogenic, highly toxic metabolites of Fusarium moniliforme, a mould fungi which grows hostspecific 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 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 body weight 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.
