EuroProxima PLUS Aflatoxin M1 fast
Art. No.: 5121AFMF
EuroProxima PLUS Aflatoxin M1 fast is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of aflatoxin M1 in milk, cheese and butter.
Aflatoxins are highly toxic mycotoxins. They are produced by some Aspergillusmoulds, i.e. Aspergillus flavus, A. paraciticus and the rare A. nomius. Aflatoxin M1 is
the hydroxylated metabolite of aflatoxin B1 and can be found in milk obtained from livestock that have ingested contaminated feed. The main sources of aflatoxins in
feeds are peanut meal, maize and cottonseed meal.Also human breast milk can contain aflatoxin M1 after the lactating woman has consumed food contaminated with aflatoxin B1.
For Aflatoxin M1 Maximum tolerance Levels (ML) are established legally in Europe.
These limits are as follows:
Milk, including raw milk, milk for the production of milk based products and heat treated milk: 50 ppt
Infant formulae and follow-on formulae, including infant milk and follow-on milk: 25 ppt
Dietary foods for special medical purposes intended specifically for infants: 25 ppt.
|Test format||Microtiter plate with 96 wells (12 strips with 8 wells each).|
