R5602 RIDASCREEN®FAST Fumonisin Microtiter plate with 48 wells (6 strips with 8 re call for price none

Intended use:
RIDASCREEN®FAST Fumonisin is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of fumonisin in cereals and feed.

The test is approved by the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA/GIPSA) for 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 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.
