Aflatoxin, a toxin from a naturally occurring mold, is a Group 1 carcinogen proven to cause cancer in humans. The United State federal government action level for Aflatoxin in food for human consumption or in dairy cow feed is 20 ppb. For milk for human consumption the level is 0.5ppb. Levels up to 300ppb are allowed in certain circumstances for nondairy animal feed.

AflaTest from VICAM is the only Aflatoxin test than produces precise numerical results. Using monoclonal affinity chromatography, AflaTest can isolate Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, and G2 from feeds, food, grains, and nuts, and M1 from dairy products.

  • QUICK - Less than 10 minutes to test (excluding sample preparation and extraction)
  • SENSITIVE - Detects levels as low as 0.1 ppb
  • WIDE RANGE - Can measure levels as high as 300 ppb
  • CONVENIENT - Use same extract and instrumentation for testing for other mycotoxins
  • EASY - No special skills required, test can be performed virtually anywhere
  • SAFE - Requires less toxic materials than conventional methods
  • Precise numerical results

AOAC and FGIS approved, AflaTest is safe and simple. It can be performed in less than 10 minutes and requires no special skills. Results may be recorded using a digital fluorometer readout with automatic printing devices. And, you have the best all worlds: sensitivity, simplicity, and speed - quick tests for parts per billion levels. AflaTest is also ideal as the cleanup step for any HPLC analysis.

Also, AflaTest has a long shelf life. In fact, no other test comes close for speed, quantification, and economy.

Extract sample
  • Grind and weigh sample
  • Blend sample with salt and methanol / water mixture
  • Filter
Dilute and filter
  • Dilute aliquot of extracted sample with water
  • Filter
Absorb and Elute
  • Pass filtrate over AflaTest affinity column
  • Pass water over column
  • Elute Aflatoxins from the column with methanol and collect in a cuvette
  • Add developer to eluate and place cuvette into a calibrated fluorometer and read results in ppb or,
  • Inject eluate into HPLC and determine individual Aflatoxin concentration by HPLC
