Product info

RIDASCREEN® Aflatoxin Total

Art. No.: R4701

Intended use

RIDASCREEN® Aflatoxin Total is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of aflatoxins in cereals and feed.

General Information

Aflatoxins are secondary metabolites of the fungi species Aspergillus flavus, parasiticus und nomius. These fungi occur in humid tropical areas and the contamination of vegetable food takes place in the cultivable countries. Aflatoxins belong to the strongest natural occurring cancerogenic substances. Aflatoxin B1 appears nearly in all cases together with Aflatoxin B2 , G1 and G2 and it is the analyte with the highest toxic significance. It is found above all in corn, peanuts, brazil nuts, cotton seed and pistachios. Due to the toxicity of these mycotoxins maximum levels for Aflatoxin B1 and total Aflatoxins for food and feed apply in EU countries.
