Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites with toxic action on humans and animals. They are synthesized by molds 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.
