Pet Food

Mycotoxins, the toxic chemical byproducts of naturally occurring molds, are among the most common risks for pet food companies today. The US FDA recommendation for pet foods indicates maximum levels for aflatoxin at less than 20 ppb and less than 5 parts per million (ppm) for deoxynivalenol (DON). VICAM’s AOAC and USDA-GIPSA approved diagnostic kits provide the most comprehensive and effective tools for mycotoxin monitoring and prevention in the world.

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
A chemical of concern found in polycarbonate consumer products such as plastic food and beverage containers, a known endocrine disruptor to numerous adverse health effects.
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.
