DonSensor Quanti - KIT065

Quantitative Rapid Test Detecting Deoxynivalenol In Cereals And Animal Feed

 packshot

DonSensor Quanti is a rapid assay in dipstick format detecting quantitatively the contamination of cereals and animal feed samples by Deoxynivalenol molecules

Principle

Donsensor is a competitive test involving specific antibodies with high affinity for DON molecules.

The test requires the use of two components :

  • The first component is a microwell containing predetermined amount of antibody linked to gold particles.
  • The second is a dipstick made up of a set of membranes with specific capture lines.

Good to know

Deoxynivalenol (DON), also known as vomitoxin, is a type B trichothecene. It occurs in grains such as wheat, barley, oats, rye, and maize, rice, sorghum. Deoxynivalenol (DON) is produced by numerous strains of Fusarium and some other fungi. Deoxynivalenol (DON) poisonings occur both in humans and farm animals.

Deoxynivalenol (DON) is highly toxic, producing a wide range of immunological disturbances and is particularly noted for inducing feed refusal and emesis in pigs, hence the alternative name vomitoxin. Deoxynivalenol (DON) usually co-occurs with other Fusarium toxins, such as Zearalenone, Nivalenol and its derivates, as well as the group of fumonisins.

How to use

The test can be used in-situ for daily controls or in laboratories for the analysis of series of samples.
