Interpretation of results

Interpretation of results


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


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


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 Zearalenone

Zearalenone, also known as F-2 mycotoxin, is produced by some Fusarium and Gibberella species. Its potency is borne out of the fact it mimics estrogens and can have an adverse affect the reproductive system in animals. If ZEA is detected in livestock it can have a negative financial impact as herds can be depleted due to reduced reproduction.

As Zearalenone forms on commodities such as maize, which is commonly used as a food source for poultry, cattle and swine, food safety professionals are keen to monitor for ZEA to reduce its impact on livestock yield.

In addition, ZEA can contaminate wheat crops. As wheat is normally milled into flour and used in many foodstuffs, such as bread, pasta etc. Producers and processors of the raw wheat commodity are legally obliged to ensure food is safe for human consumption.

Humid conditions and low temperatures favour the production of this mycotoxin, hence why it is important to monitor for Zearalenone and other mycotoxins in grain stores.
