T-2 and HT-2 mycotoxins are produced by Fusarium and other mold species that can commonly attack grains and can grow at temperatures from slightly above freezing to about 86°F (30°C). All domestic animals are susceptible to injury by dietary intake of T-2 in the range of a few ppm. In poultry, feed contaminated with 1.0 to 3.5 ppm of T- 2 has produced lesions at the edges of the beaks, abnormal feathering in chicks, a drastic and sudden drop in egg production, eggs with thin shells, reduced weight gains, and mortality.
The T-2/HT-2 LC test combines VICAM’s proven immunoassay technology with LC or LC-MS/MS to detect and measure both T-2 and HT-2 toxins. T-2/HT-2 LC streamlines sample cleanup and when used in conjunction with UV detection provides precise readings at ng levels.
Employing powerful, precise monoclonal antibody-based affinity chromatography, T-2test LC is a LC or LC-MS/MS focused approach for the detection of T-2 mycotoxin for food and agricultural businesses and laboratories who depend on reliable, reproducible analytical results for T-2.
T2/HT2-V AQUA eliminates the need for hazardous solvents, using a water-based extraction procedure that requires no dilution step and develops in just 5 minutes. Results are displayed on the digital screen, printed, or transferred to a computer for storage and use as an integral quality assurance tool.
