Tribo™ Zearalenone (ZEA) test strip (20 strips/pack)
Zearalenone (also known as ZEA, RAL and F-2 mycotoxin), is a potent estrogenic compound produced by some Fusarium species. It is commonly found in grains such as maize, barley, oats, wheat, rice, and sorghum, and therefore can be found in bread as well.

Zearalenone (also known as ZEA, RAL and F-2 mycotoxin), is a potent estrogenic compound produced by some Fusarium species. It is commonly found in grains such as maize, barley, oats, wheat, rice, and sorghum, and therefore can be found in bread as well. Its strong estrogenic effect can lead to significant increase of estrogen level in poultry and livestock, and its impact on reproductive system of pregnant animal and human could lead to abortion, fetal death or malformed fetus. In addition, eating food prepared with zearalenone contaminated flour can also lead to toxicity to central nervous system, with symptoms of nausea, feeling cold, headache, depression, or ataxia. TriboTM zearalenone rapid test strip provides a rapid and convenient test for zearalenone with a colloidal gold immunochromatographic design. It provides a fast (results shown in 10 minutes), simple (no instrument is required, and results can be observed visually), sensitive and reliable detection approach for the presence of zearalenone in grains and grain products. The lower limit of detection (LOD) of zearalenone in the sample is 200 ng/ml (200 ppb).
