EuroProxima PLUS Aflatoxin M1 sensitive
Art. No.: 5121AFMS
EuroProxima PLUS Aflatoxin M1 sensitive is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of aflatoxin M1 in milk, cheese, butter and infant formula.
Aflatoxins are highly toxic mycotoxins. They are produced by some Aspergillus moulds, 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 (raw milk, milk for the production of milk-based products and heat treated milk: 0.05 ppb.
Infant formulae and follow-on formulae, including infant milk and follow-on milk: 0.025 ppb.
Dietary foods for special medical purposes intended specifically for infants: 0.025 ppb.
