Abingdon Health is pleased to announce the introduction of a range of mycotoxin rapid tests, under its Pocket Diagnostic® brand name.

Designed to offer rapid results, the new range of easy-to-use cost-effective screening tools will detect a variety of mycotoxins in minutes and adheres to EU cut-off levels.

Mycotoxins are naturally occurring chemically related toxic fungal metabolites produced by a variety of fungi, belonging mainly to the Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium genera. Owing to their potential harm to humans and animals, mycotoxins are subject to stringent regulations by food and feed industries.

Mycotoxins have the ability to appear at every step of the food supply chain, even survive food processing. Therefore, having a rapid in-field test that can aid the monitoring of these toxic chemicals is something that benefits quality managers, growers, advisors and inspectors alike.

The Pocket Diagnostic® will detect the following mycotoxins:

  • Aflatoxin B1
  • Total Aflatoxin
  • Ochratoxin A
  • Fumonisin
  • Zearalenone (ZEA)
