Natural Toxins

Various toxins can be present in different food types and commodities that can cause

adverse affects on products, animals, and humans. Mycotoxins (Fumosin, T2, Zearalenone,

Ochratoxin A, DON, and Aflatoxins) are derived from various mold types that can contaminate

cereals, feeds, grains and other food types. Histamine primarily affects fish products and

can cause scromboid poisoning in humans. The EPA and FDA have set various action levels and

limits for Natural Toxins in food and feeds.

Methods are based on ELISA, or LC/MS methodology, depending on sample matrix, sensitivity
