Bio-Shield T-2 / HT-2
Catalog number: B3248 /B3296
Bio-Shield T-2/HT-2 is an ELISA test for the determination of Trichothecene T-2/HT-2 in grains, cereals and animal feeds.
T-2 and HT-2 toxin belong to the group of trichothecenes. This group of mycotoxins are produced mainly by fungi of the genus Fusarium which is toxic to humans and animals. Agricultural commodities are frequently infected by this fungus. It is frequently implicated in cytotoxic and immunosuppressive disorders of farm animals and occasionally in pathogenetic syndromes in humans. Both in man and in animals T-2/HT-2 toxins can cause alimentary toxic aleukia. Most controlling government agencies worldwide have regulations or recommendations regarding the amount of T-2/HT-2 allowable in human and animal foodstuffs. Accurate and rapid determination of T-2/HT-2 presence in commodities is of paramount importance.
