General description

Aflatoxins are hepatotoxic metabolites, which are produced by molds, such as Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. They are naturally occurring poisonous carcinogens and the most widely known mycotoxins. They mainly contaminate fruits, vegetables and grains. Aflatoxins contaminate human food and animal feed. They are associated with liver cancer, immune system suppression, reduced growth rates, losses in feed efficiency and death. Aflatoxin B is more carcinogenic than Aflatoxin G.

Application

Aflatoxin B + G mixture has been used for the quantification of aflatoxin by high-performance thin-layer chromatography, using a charge-coupled device detector.

Reconstitution

Concentration: 5 μg aflatoxin B1, 1.5 μg aflatoxin B2, 5 μg aflatoxin G1, 1.5 μg aflatoxin G2 per mL after reconstitution to approx. 5 ml.
