Mycotoxins

SYNLAB Food Testing Laboratories specialise in mycotoxins testing services. Mycotoxins are low-molecular weight, chemically diverse toxins that are produced naturally by moulds found contaminating crop plants and fruit.

Factors that influence the presence of mycotoxins in your food or feed can include environmental conditions related to storage surroundings, climate, or intrinsic factors such as fungal strain specificity, strain variation, and instability of toxigenic properties. These intrinsic factors are more difficult to control.

Mycotoxins can have various severe and chronic effects on both humans and animals. For example, the presence of mycotoxins can lead to loss of both human and animal life, and economic implications can include increased healthcare or veterinary care costs, reduced production, or the need to dispose of contaminated foods and feed. Testing for the presence of mycotoxins in your products can help significantly to reduce these risks.

At SYNLAB Food Testing Laboratories we use ELISA technology to carry out mycotoxins testing for the presence of mycotoxins in your products. A range of other services including multi-toxin screens, histamine analysis, and protein determination are also available. All of our services are low cost, high quality and delivered with an extremely competitive turnaround time.

Below is a List of Our Available Mycotoxins Tests:

Please note, the majority of our ELISA and PCR tests are accredited. If they are not accredited we have flexible scope for ELISA and PCR based methods so please ask the laboratory if you are interested in having a particular test accredited.
