BIO-SHIELD Aflatoxin M1 BF

ELISA method of 48 or 96 wells, quantifying Aflatoxin M1 within the range of 5-80 ppt in raw, pasteurized, UHT milk, milk powder and cheese, adjusted to the EU legislation limit of 50 ppt, in 75 minutes.

GENERAL INFORMATION: Aflatoxins are toxic metabolites of major concern to the dairy industry, generally produced by Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus and A. nomius. They can have immunosuppressive, mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic effects. Aflatoxines that are ingested by animals in contaminated pellets and forage are biotransformed at the hepatic level into M1 Aflatoxin (AFM1). Aflatoxin is then excreted in this form into the milk used for human consumption and, it is also present in dairy products. M1 Aflatoxin in milk and milk products is considered to pose certain hygienic risks for human health and as a result there is an established EU limit 0,05 μg/kg (50ppt) and 0.025 μg/kg for infant food.
