T-2/HT-2 Testing Solutions

HT-2 toxin and T-2 toxin are both potent fungal toxins that affect crops under conditions of high humidity and temperatures of 6-24°C.

These toxins are known to cause dermal necrosis, bloody diarrhea and affect production (weight gain, eggs, milk). Both toxins are formed by Fusarium species and mainly affect corn, wheat, barley, oats, rice and rye. T-2/HT-2 are frequently found under poor storage conditions.

Countries have established regulations to protect consumers from the harmful effects of T-2/HT-2 toxin intake. The European Union has established guidance levels for food and feed whereas China has established allowable levels of T-2 toxin in feed.
