Mycotoxin Detection Kit

List Description

These standard solutions are used for mycotoxin detection in FDA regulated tests. Materials listed below are commonly used in food contamination testing.

Kit Note

All products listed are FDA analytical standard solutions.

Analysis Note

Combinations of the below products can be used for calibration methods, recovery experiments, and detection of mycotoxins in samples. The certified mycotoxin reference standard solutions provide detection limits and validation of methods. Also, included in the list are single components standard solutions that are used for quality control of food, feed and mixes that allow for analysis of individual mycotoxins in multi-toxin samples.

Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is a potent carcinogen that can induce hepatocellular carcinoma. AFB1-8,9-exo-epoxide, one of AFB1 metabolites, acts as a mutagen to react with DNA and induce gene mutations, including the tumor suppressor p53...Read More

Aflatoxins (AF) and fumonisins (FU) are a major problem faced by poultry farmers, leading to huge economic losses. This experiment was conducted to determine the effects of AF (1 mg/kg of feed) and FU (25 mg/kg of feed), singly or in combination, on the lipid metabolism in commercial layers and investigate the efficacy of a commercial binder (2 kg/t of feed) on reducing the toxic effects of these mycotoxins...Read More

This article describes the use of microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) as a pretreatment technique for the determination of aflatoxins B(1), G(1), B(2), and G(2) in grains and grain products. The optimal operation parameters, including extraction solvent, temperature, and time, were identified to be acetonitrile as the extraction solvent at 80 °C with 15 min of MAE...Read More

Toxins 2012-10-01
The objective of the present study was to monitor the occurrence and distribution of a spectrum of trichothecene toxins in different parts of maize plants. Therefore maize plants were sampled randomly from 13 fields in southwest Germany and the fractions kernels, cobs, husks, stalks, leaves and rudimentary ears were analyzed for eight A-type and five B-type trichothecenes...Read More

Food Additives & Contaminants: Part A - Chemistry, Analysis, Control, Exposure & Risk Assessment 2013-02-01
Fusarium verticillioides is the main source of fumonisins, a group of mycotoxins that can contaminate maize-based food and feed and cause diseases in humans and animals. The study of the effect of different environmental conditions on toxin production should provide information that can be used to develop strategies to minimize the risk...Read More

A collaborative study was conducted to validate an analytical method for the determination of ochratoxin A (OTA) in licorice (root powder) and licorice extracts (paste and powder). Contents of OTA ranged from 26 to 141 microg/kg and from 8 to 52 microg/kg for licorice extracts and root material, respectively...Read More

Factors limiting trichothecene contamination of mature wheat grains after Fusarium infection are of major interest in crop production. In addition to ear infection, systemic translocation of deoxynivalenol (DON) may contribute to mycotoxin levels in grains after stem base infection with toxigenic Fusarium spp...Read More
