U.S. EPA. Attenuation of Ricin Toxin under Ambient Conditions and Elevated Temperature and Humidity. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-16/061, 2016.
This study focused on the attenuation of ricin toxin on six types of materials representative of a mail sorting facility and/or indoor building materials. Attenuation tests were conducted under various combinations of temperature, relative humidity (RH), and contact time, using two forms of ricin toxin: a commercially-available pure preparation and a crude preparation from castor beans.
