We are attending World Mycotoxin Forum Meets IUPAC 2019

 

We are attending World Mycotoxin Forum in Belfast from 14th-16th October 2019! Stop by to find out more about our full product range of mycotoxin screening solutions.

 

A recent study published in the US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health states:

“Mycotoxin contamination has been a worldwide problem for crop cultivation, animal production and human health for a long time. More than 300 mycotoxins have been reported, and only those that have been proven carcinogenic and/or toxic have received extensive scientific attention

 

Fumonisins, trichothecenes, and zearalenone (ZEN) are common Fusarium toxins present in cereals. Toxins mainly produced by Fusarium culmorumF. graminearumF. sporotrichioides, and F. poae, trichothecenes are known to cause emesis, inflammation, and diarrhea.

 

Co-occurrence of mycotoxins in cereal and cereal-derived products has been observed in several studies. The main reason is that the same food or feed material can be colonised by various mycotoxigenic fungi that are capable of producing a variety of mycotoxins.”

 

In order to help the agriculture industry Randox Food Diagnostics provide a multiplexing solution for mycotoxin testing in many matrices including corn, cereals and feed.

 

Our Myco 9 Array utilises Biochip Array Technology on the Evidence Investigator analyser and can allow the detection of up to 9 groups of mycotoxins from one single sample including aflatoxins G1/G2 & B1/B2, diacetoxyscirpenol, fumonisins, paxilline, ochratoxin A, deoxynivalenol (DON), T2 toxin and Zearalenone.

 

Randox Food also offer a range of premium quality ELISA kits which provide a fast reliable method to detect the presence of aflatoxin B1 and ergot alkaloids in multiple sample types.
