Mycotoxins

Sample Preparation and Analysis

According to estimations by the FAO up to one forth of the world production of food is contaminated with mycotoxins. These toxins, which are produced by fungi during inappropriate storage, are an enormous health risk for the consumer: They can lead to toxications and enhance the cancer risk.


EU-wide strict regulations concerning the maximum content of mycotoxins are set up leading to the necessarity of an effective and powerful analysis.

 

LCTech supports you in your daily laboratory routine with a range of clever, reliable products at reasonable prices: from immunoaffinity columns and derivatisation devices up to a system for the complete automation in the mycotoxin analysis.
