New applications for Celer AFLA B1 and B ZERO AFLA B1

Aflatoxin B1 is the most common in food and among the most potent genotoxic and carcinogenic aflatoxins. Aflatoxin M1 is a major metabolite of aflatoxin B1 in humans and animals, which may be present in milk from animals fed with aflatoxin B1 contaminated feed. Having reliable, cost-effective, flexible screening tools that can be applied on many different matrices is the best way to perform the monitoring along the food and feed chains and guarantee their compliancy and safety.

Tecna R&D team just finalized four new matrix validations for Celer AFLA B1 and B ZERO AFLA B1 ELISA kits. Sorghum, soy, almond and peanut were validated indeed. The whole list of applications for both kits includes also corn, high moisture corn, silage and mash, feed, hazelnuts, pistachios, raisins, figs, DDGS ("Distillers"), cottonseed, soybean meal. 

Having a long list of validated matrices is a consistent advantage for industries and laboratories, even when performing occasional analysis. The sample preparation procedures are well described in the kit insert, that can be evaluated also online by visiting the product page. The performances are also shown in the capter dealing with specifications. 

Further details of in-house validation data and results obtained within Tecna EQC plans are available on the kit Performance Data Sheet, that is available upon request at
