Mycotoxins, the toxic chemical byproducts of naturally occurring molds, are among the most common risks for pet food companies today. The US FDA recommendation for pet foods indicates maximum levels for aflatoxin at less than 20 ppb and less than 5 parts per million (ppm) for deoxynivalenol (DON). VICAM’s AOAC and USDA-GIPSA approved diagnostic kits provide the most comprehensive and effective tools for mycotoxin monitoring and prevention in the world.
Mycotoxin Testing Solutions
Highly toxic chemical byproducts of Aspergillus molds which are known to cause cancer in humans.
Toxin produced by Fusarium molds which causes livestock feed refusal, vomiting and interferes with growth and development.
Toxic chemical metabolite of Fusarium molds which causes equine leukoencephalomalacia and has been linked to human esophageal cancer.
Toxic byproduct of Aspergillus and Penicillium molds which is a suspect carcinogen and causes serious disease in humans and animals.
Toxic chemical metabolite of Fusarium molds which inhibits DNA and protein synthesis, resulting in severe diseases of the airway, skin and stomach.
Estrogenic toxin produced by Fusarium molds which disrupts livestock growth and reproduction resulting in significant production losses.
