Vicam's Don-V Strip tests answer one of today's toughest food safety challenges with a new user-friendly lateral flow DON test that delivers accurate quantitative results in a matter of minutes. DON is a toxic by product of several Fusarium mold species that commonly infect wheat, corn, barley, and other grains. Nicknamed vomitoxin for its severe effects on the gastrointestinal system, DON may also cause reduced feed intake, poor weight gain, and immunosuppression in susceptible livestock species, even at low concentrations (1 to 3ppm). Concerns about acute DON toxicity, as well as the risks of chronic exposure, in animals and humans continue to fuel surveillance of grain crops worldwide.
DON is often present with other mycotoxins and has been isolated from grains and feeds throughout the world at levels as high as 92ppm. Today, many customers require DON levels to be less than 2.0ppm for animal feed and 1.0ppm for commodities destined for human consumption.
DON-V strip tests utilize the proven sensitivity and selectivity of VICAM's monoclonal antibodies to accurately detect and measure total DON in grain and feed at levels as low as 0.2ppm. The single-dilution sample preparation procedure saves time and materials, and the test takes less than 5 minutes to complete (After filtration). Digital readings are clearly displayed on the screen of the Vertu Lateral Flow Reader, eliminating any guesswork about the results.
