Deoxynivalenol (DON)

Helica™ Deoxynivalenol (DON) ELISA

Deoxynivalenol (DON) is a low molecular weight metabolite of the trichothecene mycotoxin group produced by fungi of the Fusarium genus, particularly Fusarium graminearum. These fungi occur widely and will infect barley, wheat, and corn (maize). Deoxynivalenol is highly toxic, causing health concerns in both animals and humans alike. To help protect against the consumption of deoxynivalenol Hygiena™ offers the Helica™ Deoxynivalenol (DON) ELISA. A competitive enzyme-linked immunoassay intended for the quantitative detection of deoxynivalenol in cereal grains and other commodities including animal feeds.
