Corn/Maize

Corn/maize is at risk for the presence of mycotoxins such as aflatoxin, vomitoxin (DON), fumonisin, zearalenone and ochratoxin. Global regulations set limits for maximum allowable levels of mycotoxins in maize as low as 2 parts per billion (ppb) for aflatoxin B1, 750 ppb deoxynivalenol (DON), 200 ppb fumonisin, 3 ppb ochratoxin A and 60 ppb of zearalenone. VICAM offers 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.
Aflatoxin M1
Toxic chemical metabolite of aflatoxin B1 which is found in dairy products and is a suspect human carcinogen.
Bisphenol A
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical contaminant found in polycarbonate consumer products, as well as food and beverages.  BPA is a known endocrine disruptor associated with serious risks to human health and reproductivity.
Citrinin
Toxic chemical metabolite produced by Penicillium molds which is known to cause severe kidney and liver damage.
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.
T-2/HT-2
Toxic chemical metabolite of Fusarium molds which inhibits DNA and protein synthesis, resulting in severe diseases of the airway, skin and stomach.
Zearalenone
Estrogenic toxin produced by Fusarium molds which disrupts livestock growth and reproduction resulting in significant production losses.
