Rapid screening solution

Mycotoxins are naturally occurring chemically related toxic fungal metabolites produced by a variety of fungi, belonging mainly to the Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium genera.

The robust nature of mycotoxins means they have the ability to grow at every step of the food supply chain, even survive food processing.

Owing to their potential to harm humans, mycotoxins are subject to stringent regulations by food and feed industries. Therefore, having an easy-to-use rapid test that can detect these toxic chemicals in-the-field means food safety professionals can monitor mycotoxin levels in real time and at the source.

  • Aflatoxin B1
