Rapid tests for T-2/HT-2 toxins from Neogen® can provide fully quantitative results for a wide variety of grain and grain product samples in the range of 25-600 ppb.
T-2/HT-2 toxins are trichothecene mycotoxins produced by several species of Fusarium moulds. As T-2 toxin is readily metabolised to HT-2 toxin, and the toxins have been shown to produce numerous adverse effects on many animals, these two mycotoxins are frequently evaluated together. Animals affected by the toxins include swine, dairy cattle, poultry, dogs, cats and horses. Effects of the toxins include digestive disorders, haemorrhage, edema, oral lesions, dermatitis, and blood disorders. T-2 toxin is the principal causal toxin in the human disease alimentary toxic aleukia. Poultry studies have shown T-2 intoxication has led to a reduction in weight gain and other problems such as beak lesions, poor feathering, motor function impairment and increased susceptibility to Salmonella spp.
Neogen’s NeoColumn™ for T-2/HT-2 are immunoaffinity columns that efficiently clean and concentrate the toxins prior to analysis by HPLC or Neogen’s Veratox test kits.
Neogen’s Reveal® Q+ (quantitative) screening kits for T-2/HT-2 are extremely easy-to-use and interpret test strips that screen samples against set thresholds.
Neogen’s Reveal Q+ MAX for T-2/HT-2 kits are quantitative lateral flow tests that use a water based extraction. The kit utilizes the MAX common extraction allowing users to process one sample extract and test any of six mycotoxins. The test's aqueous extraction eliminates the need for hazardous materials and its innovative technology yields precise, accurate, and reproducible results.
Neogen’s Veratox® for T-2/HT-2 kits are quantitative tests that compare up to 19 samples at a time against test controls. Through the use of a microwell reader, the tests provide accurate sample results in parts per million (ppm) or parts per billion (ppb).
