Zearalenone (ZEN) is a nonsteroidal estrogenic mycotoxin primarily produced by Fusarium fungi, which also commonly produces deoxynivalenol. Hence, there is evidence that if zearalenone is detected, there is a high probability that other fusarial mycotoxins may be present.

Zearalenone is heat-stable and is found worldwide in a number of cereal crops, such as maize, barley, oats, wheat, rice, and sorghum. When zearalenone-contaminated feed or grain is eaten by livestock, it can cause a wide variety of reproductive problems. In swine, it causes vulvovaginitis, low birth weights, fetal reabsorption, aborted pregnancies, reduced litter sizes, abnormal estrus and feminization of immature males. The involvement of zearalenone in human toxicoses has not been confirmed, but it is classified as an endocrine disrupter and is considered potentially hazardous for humans. There are no advisory levels currently available. The FDA recommends only that the level of concern for zearalenone be observed.

We offer different kits for the analysis of zearalenone as well as antibodies, conjugates and standards.
