Fumonisins are mycotoxins produced by the fungus Fusarium moniliforme. F. moniliforme is a frequent, almost universal, inhabitant of corn. Fumonisin B1, B2 and B3 are present in most corn samples tested, often totaling greater than 1 ppm. Fumonisin is thought to cause equine leukoencephalomalacia in horses, swine pulmonary edema, and human esophageal cancer. The FDA/USDA Working Group on Fumonisin advises less than 4 ppm for products for human consumption, less than 5 mg/kg in horse feed, less than 10 mg/kg for swine feed, and less than 50 mg/kg for cattle feed.
FumoniTest is a quantitative method for the detection of fumonisin B1, B2 and B3 in a variety of commodities by fluorometer or HPLC. FumoniTest is safe, fast, requires no special skills and produces precise results at parts per million levels.
FumoniTest WB is a quantitative HPLC method that uses wide bore immunoaffinity columns for the detection of fumonisin mycotoxins B1, B2 and B3 in a variety of commodities. FumoniTest WB allows for a faster flow rate and is the ideal cleanup step for any HPLC.
Fumo-V test strips accurately detect and measure total fumonisin B1, B2, and B3 at levels as low as 0.2 ppm and as high as 10 ppm. The single dilution sample preparation procedure saves time and materials, and the test strip develops in just 5 minutes.
Accurately detect and measure total fumonisin B1, B2 and B3 levels as low as 0.2 ppm and as high as 100 ppm. Eliminate the need for hazardous solvents using a water-based dilution-free extraction procedure.
