Quantitative Onsite Aflatoxin Testing
Posted on March 31, 2020 by biocheckuk.
Vicam’s AflaTest has been re-certified by the USDA Federal Grain Inspection Service for the quantitative determination of aflatoxins in corn gluten meal, distillers dried grain with solubles, milled rice (including brewer’s rice and glutinous rice), popcorn, sorghum as well as corn (including field corn, corn meal, corn flour, cracked corn, corn grits or polenta, and corn screenings). The Certificates of Conformance are now available. Bio-Check also offer Vicam’s lateral flow devices with the Vertu reader for a wide range of quantitative mycotoxin testing (total aflatoxins, aflatoxin M1, deoxynivalenol, fumonisins, ochratoxin). For example, the Afla-V strip tests accurately detect and measure total aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, and G2 at levels as low as 2 µg/kg and as high as 100 µg/kg . The tests can be easily performed on-site or in the lab, require no special training and have a long shelf life. Screen, quantify, and confirm mycotoxin levels with total confidence.
