Aflatoxin, a toxin from a naturally occurring mold, is a Group 1 carcinogen proven to cause cancer in humans. The United States federal government action level for aflatoxin in food for human consumption or in dairy cowfeed is 20 ppb. For milk for human consumption the level is 0.5 ppb. Levels up to 300 ppb are allowed in certain circumstances for nondairy animal feed. The European Union’s aflatoxin regulations for groundnuts, tree nuts, dried fruit, spices, and cereals include limits as low as 4 ppb total aflatoxins and 2 ppb for aflatoxin B1. Some EU member states have also separately established their own maximum limits on aflatoxins.
Afla-V strip tests accurately detect and measure total aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, and G2 at levels as low as 2 ppb and as high as 100 ppb. The single dilution sample preparation procedure saves time and materials, and the test takes 5 minutes* to develop.
Afla-V AQUA strip tests accurately detect and measure total aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) at levels as low as 2.5 ppb and as high as 50 ppb. Afla-V AQUA eliminates the need for hazardous solvents using a water-based, dilution-free extraction procedure that develops in just 5 minutes.
Alfa M1-V quantitative strip tests answer one of today’s toughest food safety challenges with a new, user friendly lateral flow strip test for aflatoxin M1 in dairy products—providing precise results in just minutes.
Afla B is a quantitative method that can isolate aflatoxins B1 and B2 from feeds, food, grains, and nuts via fluorometric or HPLC detection. Afla B is sensitive, simple, and fast, enabling quick tests for parts per billion or parts per trillion levels.
AflaCheck is a qualitative one-step test kit for the detection of aflatoxin. AflaCheck uses highly specific reactions between antibodies and aflatoxin to detect aflatoxin in a variety of samples.
Afla M1 FL+ is a quantitative method for fluorometric based detection of aflatoxin M1 in milk at parts per trillion (ppt) levels. Afla M1 FL+ can be performed rapidly, requires no special skills and is useful for both the milk processing QC and government testing laboratory.
Afla M1 HPLC is an HPLC only test for the detection of aflatoxin M1 using immunoaffinity columns. An ideal cleanup step for any HPLC, Afla M1 HPLC delivers the results dairies need using a fast-flow column that delivers 75% to 95% recovery depending on the sample.
AflaOchra HPLC is the only test that employs a single column to produce precise numerical results for both ochratoxin A and the aflatoxins B1, B2, G1 and G2 in a variety of commodities.
AflaTest is a quantitative method for the detection of aflatoxin in many commodities. The test can be used in a wide variety of locations from the local farm elevator to food processing quality control laboratories to government testing laboratories.
AflaTest WB is an HPLC-only test for the detection of aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2 and M1 using wide bore immunoaffinity columns. AflaTest WB allows for a faster flow rate preferred by many laboratories and is the ideal cleanup step for any HPLC.
AflaTest WB SR is a quantitative method that selectively isolates aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2 and M1 for HPLC analysis. The fast-flow widebore columns are specially designed to maximize aflatoxin G2 recovery and accelerate sample throughput.
AOZ HPLC is a quantitative method for the simultaneous detection of aflatoxin, ochratoxin A (OTA) and zearalenone (ZEA) in several commodities. Using LC or LC-MS/MS for detection, this test produces precise numerical results in micrograms per kilogram (μg/kg) or parts per billion (ppb).
