Symmetric Zearalenone (ZON) Green
Catalog number: S5024/5048
Symmetric Zearalenone (ZON) Green is an innovative Lateral Flow test, utilizing state-of-the-art features for the quantitative detection of Zearalenone, in grains, nuts, cereals and other commodities including animal feeds.
Symmetric Deoxynivalenol (DON) Green utilizes an ecological buffer for the extraction step with no organic solvents.
Zearalenone (ZON) is a member of the trichothecene mycotoxins produced by fungi of the Fusarium genus (F. graminearum). Grains including barley, wheat, oats, corn, rice and maize are frequently infected by this fungus. It is frequently implicated in reproductive disorders of farm animals and occasionally in hyperoestrogenic syndromes in humans. There is evidence that ZON and its metabolites possess oestrogenic activity in pigs, cattle and sheep. Moreover, ZON has also been shown to be hepatotoxic, haematotoxic, immunotoxic and genotoxic. Most controlling government agencies worldwide have regulations regarding the amount of ZON allowable in human and animal foodstuffs. Accurate and rapid determination of ZON presence in commodities is of paramount importance.
