Mycotoxin Testing

Mycotoxins are naturally occurring chemical substances produced by moulds (fungi) that may contaminate agricultural commodities. Analytical testing services for mycotoxins and a full spectrum of food contaminants can easily be facilitated by Mérieux NutriSciences’ laboratories to ensure the safety of your food products. 

Mycotoxins may contaminate agricultural commodities like nuts, grains and cereals, spices, and dried fruit. Foods contaminated with mycotoxins can sometimes cause acute illness and are associated with increased cancer risks from long-term exposure. Many countries have adopted regulations to limit consumer exposure to mycotoxins. Among the most requested are Aflatoxins, Fumonisins, Patuline, Trichothecenes, Octratoxins and Deoxynivalenol.

Mérieux NutriSciences’ improved local offering in analytical Mycotoxin testing will lead to faster turnaround times, ensuring that your food products are safe for consumption and reach the consumer on schedule. Contact our experts to discuss your testing needs and discover how we can help you.
