Interpretation of results

Interpretation of results

 POSITIVE

The Test Line (T) is lighter in colour than the Control Line (C) or there is no Test Line. 

   NEGATIVE

The Test Line (T) is the same density of colour as, or darker than the Control Line (C).

  INVALID RESULT

An invalid result is likely to occur if there has been an insufficient volume of sample added to the sample well or the test procedure has not been followed correctly. In the event of an invalid result follow the test procedure again with a new rapid test. If invalid results continue after two further attempts contact your supplier.

About Aflatoxin

Aflatoxin is a toxin produced by fungi, Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus, and can be very harmful to humans. Found on a variety of agricultural crops, Aflatoxin-producing fungi can contaminate crops in the field, at harvest, and during storage, thus compromising the food chain.

Aflatoxin is prevalent in warm and humid conditions, and can even survive food processing. It is this ability to survive warm conditions that results in Aflatoxin being monitored rigorously right throughout the food chain. In addition, Aflatoxin is known to be genotoxic and carcinogenic, so food producers are keen to reduce the exposure of this potent mycotoxin to consumers.
