Interpretation of results

Interpretation of results

 POSITIVE

The Test Line (T) is lighter in colour than the Control Line (C) or there is no Test Line. 

   NEGATIVE

The Test Line (T) is the same density of colour as, or darker than the Control Line (C).

  INVALID RESULT

An invalid result is likely to occur if there has been an insufficient volume of sample added to the sample well or the test procedure has not been followed correctly. In the event of an invalid result follow the test procedure again with a new rapid test. If invalid results continue after two further attempts contact your supplier.

About Fumonisin

Fumonisin is a mycotoxin produced by fungi in the Fusarium genus and occurs mainly in corn but has been reported in rice, sorghum and barley.

Fumonsins have been linked with causing esophageal cancel in humans, pulmonary edema in pigs and leukoencephalomalacia in horses.

Although there is no definitive answer as to what are the optimum conditions for the production of Fumonisin, warm and weather can be linked to its production.
