Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of moulds, which already have toxic effects on vertebrates in the smallest quantities. Depending on specific substances and concentration, they are cancerogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic and immunosuppressive.
The main source for mycotoxins entering the food chain are cereals, but many other food items such as fruits and nuts may be contaminated with mycotoxins as well. Out of the approximately 400 known species of mycotoxins, which belong to very different chemical compound classes, about 25 are counted as being relevant, due to their frequency in occurrence and their concentration.
In Vietnam, QCVN 8-1: 2011 / BYT regulates the limit level of aflatoxins, ochratoxin, Patulin, deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, fumonisin in food. NTR 2013 / BNN regulate mycotoxin level in feed.
In EU, the regulations define clearly the level of aflatoxin, fusarium (deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, fumonisin, HT - 2, T-2 toxins và Zearalenone), Ochratoxin A, Patulin, and others mycotoxin (Citrinin, Sterigmatocystin, Ergot alkaloids, Phomposins, Alternaria toxins).
Mycotoxin testing at Eurofins Sac Ky Hai Dang
Eurofins Sac Ky Hai Dang has analyzed mycotoxin for a long time with thousands of sample delivered each year.
Aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2, M1), ochratoxin A
Orchatoxin A, patulin
Deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, fumonisins
We are able to ensure the necessary detection of mycotoxins in trace amounts, thanks to a high number of specific and partly selective extraction and purification methods (such as Immunoaffinity Chromatography) and selective measuring and detection technologies (such as HPCL-MS/MS).
Why Eurofins Sac Ky Hai Dang?
Eurofins Sac Ky Hai Dang is an independent testing laboratory with more than 10 certificates from the BOA and the authorities competent state such as the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Natures Resources and Environment.
