Mycotoxins are a proven health hazard in food and feed products. Accurate identification and quantification of toxins in a seed lot is important to many companies.
ICIA offers detection methods for the following toxins, with indicated lower and upper limits of detection.
Aflatoxin lower limit: 2.5 ppb upper limit: 30 ppb
B1 Aflatoxin lower limit: 2.0 ppb upper limit: 50 ppb
Fumonison lower limit: 0.2 ppm upper limit: 6 ppm
DON lower limit: 0.25 ppm upper limit: 5.0 ppm
Zearalenone lower limit: 40 ppb upper limit: 1000 ppb
Ochratoxin lower limit: 2 ppb upper limit: 40 ppb

ICIA utilizes both ELISA plate and lateral flow strip technology to detect the presence of toxins. The lateral flow strips are quantitatively analyzed by the Envirologix QuickScan system.
All results are the result of three independent replications and are quantitative.
