T-2 toxin is a type of mycotoxin produced by certain species of fungi that commonly infect cereal crops such as wheat, barley, and oats. These fungi can grow on the crops during the growing season and produce the toxin, which can then contaminate the grain. T-2 toxin can cause a variety of health problems in animals and humans if ingested, including vomiting, diarrhea, and even death in severe cases.
The Helica™ T-2 Toxin ELISA is a test kit that allows for the rapid and accurate detection of T-2 toxin in grain samples. Some of the key benefits of this test include:
- High sensitivity: The Helica™ T-2 Toxin ELISA can detect T-2 toxin at levels as low as 0.5 ppb (parts per billion), making it one of the most sensitive tests available for T-2 toxin detection.
- Easy to use: The test is simple to perform and requires only a small sample size, making it ideal for use in the field or in a laboratory setting.
- Rapid results: The test can be completed in as little as 2 hours, allowing for quick decisions to be made about the safety of a grain sample.
Industry Usage of T-2 Toxin
Hygiena’s T-2 Toxin test kit is used in various industries such as food and beverage, agriculture, pharmaceutical and environmental testing. It detects T-2 Toxin contamination in raw materials, finished products, environmental surfaces, soil and water samples and biological samples. It helps ensure safety and prevent contamination of food products and the environment.
Breakaway Wells Allow For Low Volume Testing
Need to run a smaller testing run? Our T-2 Toxin ELISA’s have 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’s kit do not require clean up columns which saves time during the testing process and minimizes the number of extra products needed to run our ELISA tests.
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 for reagents and solutions to help you meet your testing needs.
Highly Sensitive & Specific
Helica™ T-2 Toxin ELISA’s are highly sensitive and specific to the mycotoxin each kit is designed to detect. The Helica T-2 Toxin ELISA’s can detect down to as little as 0.5 ppm of T-2 Toxin with no cross-reactivity to other toxins that may be found in each commodity being tested.
