Symmetric T-2/HT-2 Green
Catalog number: S8024/8048
Symmetric T-2/HT-2 Green is an innovative Lateral Flow test, utilizing state-of-the-art features for the quantitative detection of T-2/HT-2, in grains, nuts, cereals and other commodities including animal feed.
Symmetric T-2/HT-2 Green utilizes an ecological buffer for the extraction step with no organic solvents.
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 humans and 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 foodstuff. Accurate and rapid determination of T-2/HT-2 presence in commodities is of paramount importance.
