The Kernel 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.
