• A precise, and highly sensitive assay
• Simple sample preparation
• Results within 10 minutes
Screening of Zearalenone in Food and Feed
Zearalenone (Zea) is a nonsteroidal estrogenic mycotoxin produced by several Fusarium species. It has been implicated in numerous mycotoxicoses in farm animals, especially in pigs. It is found worldwide in a number of cereal crops such as maize, barley, oats, wheat, rice and sorghum. In order to test for Zea analytical methods such as HPLC, GC-MS, LC-MS, ELISA and TLC require trained personnel, laboratory environment, expensive equipment and analytical time takes hours or days. The Flow-Through Rapid Test kit offers rapidity and flexibility
for screening Zea under non-laboratory environments in conformity to the EU regulations.
A Precise, and highly sensitive assay
The Flow-Through Rapid Test for Zearalenone can detect Zea in different matrices with sensitivities down to 100 ppb.
Food samples are prepared for analysis by simply shaking the sample by hand in the presence of an extraction solution. An aliquot of the supernatant is diluted and used in the assay.
Results within 10 minutes
(a) The Flow-Through Rapid Test for ZEA has a detection limit of 100 ppb (ng/g)
(b) Configured for 1 – 10 tests at a time
(c) Reagents are added drop-wise
(d) Results are visually interpreted.
