AOAC and FGIS approved test kits for Aflatoxins

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

Afla-V

Afla-V strip tests utilize the proven sensitivity and selectivity of VICAM’s monoclonal antibodies to 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. Digital readings are clearly displayed on the screen of the Vertu™ Lateral Flow Reader, eliminating any guess work about the results.

Afla-V AQUA

Afla-V AQUA

Afla-V AQUA Strip Tests utilize the proven sensitivity and selectivity of VICAM's monoclonal antibodies to accurately detect and measure total aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 & 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. Results are displayed on the digital screen and may also be printed or transferred to Excel for storage and use as a vital quality assurance tool.

Afla M1-V

Afla M1-V

Aflatoxin M1 is the metabolic byproduct created when a cow ingests feed that contains aflatoxin B1. Aflatoxin M1 is a Group 2B (probable) carcinogen according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). VICAM’s Afla 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.
