Mycotoxin Testing - General Context

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites with toxic action on humans and animals. They are synthesized by molds (e.g., Aspergillus spp.) directly in the fields or during the storage of food- and feedstuffs.

The analysis of mycotoxins involves complex extraction and detection protocols. CellMadeTM Laboratories established a comprehensive range of analytical methods allowing for the determination of all mycotoxins of interest via mono- or multi-mycotoxin methods using robust Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) methods and LC-MS/MS techniques. Due to its extreme sensitivity, LC-MS/MS is the reference method of choice and it currently represents the absolute state-of-the-art of analytical chemistry!

The advantage of the CellMadeTM Laboratories analytical approach is that the ELISA methods enable for rapid screening for specific mycotoxins of interest, whereas LC-MS/MS techniques are extremely accurate, adaptable to a large range of food- and feedstuffs matrices and fulfills regulatory requirements.

CellMadeTM Laboratories offers analytical synergy between quality, reactivity and price whilst complying with all regulatory thresholds for food- and feedstuffs CellMadeTM Laboratories analytical offer enables to search for all mycotoxins subject to European Commission Regulation 1881/2006, 401/2006 and 2002/32.
