Tree Nuts

Tree nuts are at risk for the presence of mycotoxins throughout cultivation and storage when environmental conditions favor mold growth. Global regulatory limits in more than 60 countries establish maximum allowable levels of aflatoxin in tree nuts – as low as 2 parts per billion (ppb) for aflatoxin B1. VICAM offers rapid, accurate diagnostic test kits for aflatoxin screening and quantitation that meet internal quality requirements and strict global regulations.

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.
