Mycotoxin/Aflatoxin Detection

Many species of fungi produce secondary metabolites called mycotoxoins.  If these toxins are ingested by animals in excessive quantities a variety of medical issues can occur.  One of the most common mycotoxins is Aflatoxin.  Aflatoxin is known to effect plants such as cereal grains and nuts.  Most livestock consume grass or feed that is primarily composed of cereal grains.  Although there is no way to prevent mycotoxins, proper fertilization, weed control and crop rotation can aid in the plants’ natural defenses.  Proper after harvest grain storage can also play an important role in preventing the growth of mycotoxins.
