EuroProxima Ochratoxin A
Art. No.: 5121OTA
EuroProxima Ochratoxin A is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of ochratoxin A in corn, wheat, red wine, white wine, must, roasted coffee, instant coffee, green coffee, cocoa, figs and raisins.
Ochratoxin A is a nephrotoxic and nephrocarcinogenic mycotoxin produced by Penicillium verrucosum and Penicillium viridicatum in temperate and cold climates and by a number of Aspergillus species such as A. ochraceus in warmer and tropical areas of the world. Ochratoxin A has been shown to occur in various cereals and other plant products, coffee beans and coffee products, wine, and feed. In the European Union maximum levels (MLs) for ochratoxin A have been set for different food commodities.
The MLs vary from 0.5 to 20 µg/kg (ppb) depending on the food type. The guidance limits for feed are 250 µg/kg for cereals and cereal products and 50 and 100 µg/kg for
complete and complementary feeding stuffs for pigs and poultry, respectively.
