EuroProxima Aflatoxin B1 sensitive
Art. No.: 5121AFBS
EuroProxima Aflatoxin B1 sensitive is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of aflatoxin B1 in cereals, nuts, feed, infant food, liver, red pepper and serum.
Aflatoxins (Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2) are a group of structurally related, extremely toxic compounds produced by the moulds Aspergillus flavus, A. paraciticus and A.
nomius. Aflatoxins cause cancer, mainly of the liver but also of the gut, lungs and breasts. These moulds mainly occur on food, feed and their ingredients derived from
tropical and sub-tropical areas. The most pronounced contamination has been encountered in cereals, rice, maize, soy, tree nuts and peanuts.For aflatoxins maximum levels (MLs) are established legally in Europe. Depending on the products used for animal feed or direct human consumption the MLs vary from 50 to 2 µg/kg (ppb). For baby food, processed cereal-based foods for infants and young children and for dietary foods intended specifically for infants, the ML for aflatoxin B1 is set at 0.1 µg/kg (0.1 ppb).
