T-2 Toxin

Helica™ T-2 Toxin ELISA

T-2 toxin belongs to the type A trichothecene mycotoxins and is one of the most toxic secondary metabolites produced by several fungi of the genus Fusarium. Due to the typical stability of the trichothecene family, T-2 toxin is able to withstand processing procedures and can commonly be found in animal feed and food. Its contamination has been implicated to be responsible for health problems primarily because of its ability to inhibit protein synthesis in both humans and animals. T-2 toxin can cause symptoms such as weight loss or reduced weight gain, diarrhea, dermal necrosis, and dyspnea. Therefore, it is necessary to use sensitive methods for its detection. Hygiena™ offers a high sensitivity approach to testing for T-2 Toxin using the Helica™ T-2 Toxin ELISA, which is a competitive enzyme-linked immunoassay intended for the quantitative detection of T-2 Toxin in cereal and animal feed.

Breakaway Wells Allow For Low Volume Testing

Need to run a smaller testing run? Our T-2 Toxin ELISA has breakaway wells so there is no need to run all 96 wells through the testing process at a time.

Mycotoxin Testing Made Easy

No clean up columns needed
Helica™ T-2 Toxin ELISA kit does not require clean up columns which saves time during the testing process and minimizes the number of extra products needed to run each ELISA test.

Easy Extraction
A simple extraction process to prepare a sample before each test run. Grind your sample, mix with an extraction solution, dilute, and filter – your test is ready to run.

Flexible Volumes
Flexible volumes for reagents and solutions to help you meet your testing needs.

Highly Sensitive & Specific

Helica™ T-2 Toxin ELISA is highly sensitive and specific to the mycotoxin each kit is designed to detect. The Helica T-2 Toxin ELISA can detect down to as little as 12.5 ppb of T-2 Toxin with no cross-reactivity to other toxins that may be found in each commodity that is being tested.
