Wheat Testing

Wheat

Cereal grains like wheat are at risk for the presence of mycotoxins such as aflatoxin, vomitoxin (DON), fumonisin, zearalenone and ochratoxin. Global regulations set limits for maximum allowable levels as low as 4 parts per billion for aflatoxin, 3 ppb for ochratoxin A, 75 ppb for zearalenone, 500 ppb for deoxynivalenol (DON) and 1,750 ppb for fumonisin. VICAM offers a complete family of screening and quantitative solutions for on-site and laboratory detection of mycotoxins.

Mycotoxin Testing Solutions

Aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2

Highly toxic chemical byproducts of Aspergillus molds which are known to cause cancer in humans.

Deoxynivalenol

Toxin produced by Fusarium molds which causes livestock feed refusal, vomiting and interferes with growth and development.

Fumonisins B1, B2, B3

Toxic chemical metabolite of Fusarium molds which causes equine leukoencephalomalacia and has been linked to human esophageal cancer.

Ochratoxin A

Toxic byproduct of Aspergillus and Penicillium molds which is a suspect carcinogen and causes serious disease in humans and animals.

Zearalenone

Estrogenic toxin produced by Fusarium molds which disrupts livestock growth and reproduction resulting in significant production losses.
