Deoxynivalenol (DON)

Deoxynivalenol (Vomitoxin)

Deoxynivalenol (DON) is a low molecular weight metabolite of the tricothecene mycotoxin group produced by fungi of the Fusarium genus, particularly F. graminearum. These fungi occur widely and will infect barley, wheat, and corn (maize). Deoxynivalenol is highly toxic, producing a wide range of immunological disturbances and is particularly noted for inducing feed refusal and emesis in pigs, hence the alternative name vomitoxin.

Intended Use

The MycoMonitor Deoxynivalenol (DON) Assay is a competitive enzyme-linked immunoassay intended for the quantitative detection of Deoxynivalenol in cereal grains and other commodities including animal feeds.
