New test for T-2 and HT-2 mycotoxins
Charm Sciences, Inc. has released the first lateral flow quantitative test
for T-2 and HT-2 toxins.
For use in the grain industry, the new ROSA® (Rapid
One Step Assay) follows the same format that other Charm Mycotoxin tests use, as
follows: Add the sample extract to the ROSA T2-HT2 test trip, incubate and
count in the ROSA–M reader. Results are available in two ranges: 0-250
ppb, and 0 -2.5 ppm.
ROSA T2–HT2 provides a long-sought tool to rapidly and accurately detect T-2 and HT-2 toxins that adversely affect
animal and human health. T-2 and HT-2 are trichothecene toxins generated by
several Fusarium species (e.g., F. sporothrichioldes) in corn, wheat, barley, rye
In addition to the ROSA T2-HT2 test, the following ROSA
mycotoxin tests are available:
- 3 minute quantitative test for aflatoxin in
- 3 minute qualitative test for DON in wheat and barley
- 10 minute
quantitative tests for aflatoxin, DON, fumonisin, ochratoxin and zearalenone in
multiple commodities. Related website:
