Mycotoxins (Aflatoxins) Testing
Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of fungi organisms. Aflatoxins are produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. These toxins are known to be mutagenic, suppress the human immune system, and have been linked to liver cancers. Our labs use an LC/MS/MS method capable of quantifying the Aflatoxins: B1, B2, G1, and G2 to the levels specified in USP <561> Articles of Botanical Origin. We can also quantify Ochratoxin A upon request.
