Corn

Ensure the quality of corn in food and feed with AflaTest, Afla-V AQUA, DON-V and  Fumo-V AQUA.

Corn/maize is at risk for the presence of mycotoxins such as aflatoxin, vomitoxin (DON), fumonisin, zearalenone and ochratoxin. Global regulations set limits for maximum allowable levels of mycotoxins in maize as low as 2 parts per billion (ppb) for aflatoxin B1, 750 ppb deoxynivalenol (DON), 200 ppb fumonisin, 3 ppb ochratoxin A and 60 ppb of zearalenone.

Dairy

Dairy cattle may be fed rations containing aflatoxin or other mycotoxins and contamination may appear in the cow’s milk, rendering it unsafe for human consumption. Global regulatory limits for aflatoxin in milk and other dairy products are as low as 0.05 parts per billion, with even lower limits for food intended for children. VICAM offers rapid, accurate test kits that deliver precise data to ensure dairy products are safe to consume.

Verify that dairy products are safe and nutritious to consume with Afla M1 FL+, Afla M1 HPLC, Afla M1-V, Afla M1-VHS and AflaTest. More info

DDGs/Ethanol

Ethanol co-products such as dried distillers’ grains (DDG), distillers grains with soluble (DDGS), wet distillers grains (WDGS) and heavy steep water (HSW) are valuable nutrition sources for livestock producers. However, if inbound corn contains aflatoxin, fumonisin or other mycotoxins prior to processing, the final co-products streams will contain concentrated levels of mycotoxins. Rapid, on-site mycotoxin monitoring tools from VICAM help protect the value of ethanol co-products, ensuring safety and marketability. More info

Dried Fruit

VICAM’s range of AOAC and USDA approved methods ensure rapid, actionable data to support dried fruit exports worldwide.  Use AflaTest, AflaTest WB, AflaOchra HPLC, OchraTest, OchraTest WB  to detect mycotoxins such as aflatoxin and ochratoxin A which may be present in the fresh fruit counterpart prior to drying.

Pet Food

Mycotoxins are among the most common risks for pet food companies. The US FDA recommendation for pet foods indicates maximum levels for aflatoxin at less than 20 ppb and less than 5 parts per million (ppm) for deoxynivalenol (DON). VICAM’s AOAC and USDA-GIPSA approved diagnostic kits provide the most comprehensive and effective tools for mycotoxin monitoring and prevention in the world.

Protect pet health with AflaTest, Afla-V, DONtest, HPLC, DON-V, Fumo-V and Myco6in1. More info

Spices

Spices may be at risk for mycotoxins when environmental conditions encourage mould growth, despite good cultivation practices. Aflatoxin and ochratoxin are the most common to effect spice products. Global legislation places maximum allowable limits on domestic and imported food products for levels as low as 2 parts per billion (ppb) in spices. VICAM’s fast, effective detection solutions deliver AOAC and USDA approved results to help ensure market ready spice products.

Keep the spice trade healthy with AflaOchra, AflaTest, AflaTest WB, OchraTest and OchraTest WB. More info
