If certain levels of mycotoxins (e.g. aflatoxin B1, deoxynivalenol (DON), fumonisin, ochratoxin, zearalenone, T-2 toxin) are present in animal feed, they can adversely affect the health of humans and animals.
SGS regularly performs mycotoxin testing to ensure feed safety and compliance with the strict regulations in place.
Mycotoxins range in their toxicity by type and end user. Our mycotoxin tests use either an enzyme linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA) or liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrophotometry (LC MSMS). These methods of mycotoxin analysis deliver appropriate levels of detection and quantification, ensuring that your feed matches the regulatory requirements for the levels of mycotoxins present.
Approved and accredited laboratories
To maintain our reputation for independence, integrity and innovation, our mycotoxin testing laboratories operate under strict guidelines and are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 9001:2008. Staffed by scientists and technicians with years of laboratory experience – as well as degrees in chemistry, microbiology and agronomy – our labs have also earned the approval of several feed associations.
Since we adhere to the highest industry standards, your feed is sure to satisfy national and international regulations for mycotoxin levels. Discover how we can help you, now.
