New Test Strip for Aflatoxin
| The MycoChek™ Aflatoxin Test Strip Kit is a simple field-based lateral flow test strip that can detect aflatoxin at the 20 ppb threshold in corn. Since aflatoxin is a potent toxin and known carcinogen, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established action levels of 20 parts per billion (ppb) in grain and feed products. |
This test strip is rapid - 5 minutes or less to results - and easy to interpret - if 2 lines are present then the corn sample contains less than 20 ppb aflatoxin and if only one line is
present the corn sample contains greater than or equal to 20 ppb aflatoxin.
The MycoChek™ Aflatoxin Test Strip Kit has been performance certified by USDA Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA).
