Fumonisin Testing Solutions for Lab and On-Site Fumonisin Detection

Fumonisins (FUM) are potent fungal toxins formed after crops are exposed to drought stress followed by warm, wet weather conditions.

Fumonisins are tumor promotors and are known to cause total carcinogenesis and liver diseases in both humans and animals. The primary groups of fumonisins – FB1, FB2 and FB3 – occur in corn, rice, sorghum and barley. It is recommended to harvest grain without kernel damage and store them under moisture levels below 14% to avoid contamination.

Most countries have established regulations to protect consumers from the harmful effects of fumonisin intake. Such maximum levels are set for many agricultural commodities such as grains, grain by-products and feeds.
