The MaxSignal® T-2 Toxin ELISA Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of T-2 Toxin in cereals, dried meat/fish, feed, milk and seed. T-2 Toxin (T-2 ) belongs to the trichothecene group of mycotoxins and is produced by fungi of the genus Fusarium. T-2 toxin is often found in agricultural commodities. Due to its cytotoxic and immunosuppressive activity, T-2 toxin is a threat for human and animal health. Exposure of T-2 causes skin pain, itching, redness, blisters, and shedding of dead skin. The T-2 toxin also produces effects after ingestion or eye contact. Severe poisoning results in prostration, weakness, jerky movement, collapse, shock, and death.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
