Mycotoxins

 

Mycotoxins

harvest.jpgMycotoxins are a group of naturally occurring chemicals produced by certain moulds. They can grow on a variety of different crops and foodstuffs including cereals, nuts, spices, dried fruits, apple juice and coffee, often under warm and humid conditions.

The mycotoxins of most concern from a food safety perspective include the aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2 and M1), ochratoxin A, and toxins produced by Fusarium moulds, including fumonisins (B1, B2 and B3), trichothecenes (principally nivalenol, Deoxynivalenol, T-2 and HT-2 toxin) and zearalenone.

Bio-Check (UK) offers a wide range of mycotoxin detection products that cover these legislated toxins, enabling you to reliably and cost-effectively test for their presence in a range of foodstuffs. The ToxiMet system is an in-house development whilst the other options are products that we distribute from other leading manufacturers, including VICAM-Waters and Helica.
