Test Description

Aflatoxins are specific mycotoxins caused by Aspergillus species of fungi. It is crucial for effective testing practices to be utilised to accurately identify this mycotoxin group from which to form mitigation and control strategies within an ever increasing global supply chain.

Due to the high levels of aflatoxins which can be found internationally in commercially available peanut based foodstuffs, Fapas includes this peanut butter quality control material.

Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by fungi on agricultural commodities in the field or during storage.  It is estimated at 25% of the world's food crops are affected, resulting in large commercial losses. Mycotoxins can cause serious health problems, including some being suspected carcinogens, and so are tightly regulated across the world. Mycotoxin contamination is the largest cause of rapid alerts raised against imported food products.  Fapas has introduced multi-mycotoxin proficiency tests as well as those for emerging mycotoxins.

Through activities such as staff training and instrumentation validation Fapas quality control materials make a significant impact within your wider quality assurance practices to safeguard your high quality testing ability.

Fapas quality control materials make use of real food matrices to provide direct comparisons to your current routine analysis activities. This is vital to ensure only high quality testing practises are employed by your laboratory to achieve the highest standard test results possible.
