Mycotoxins must be managed through effective testing measures. This is due to the potentially harmful effects they can have when consumed in high enough quantities. Quality Control activities from Fapas provide the ideal means from which to maintain the high quality testing arrangement you require to identify and quantify any contaminants such as mycotoxins within food products.

Vine fruit encompass a large range of food products, which can require a large amount of test flexibility. Through the use of Fapas reference materials, your testing ability can be critiqued to a high degree of accuracy, to safeguard your testing ability.

Fapas quality control materials are useful to ensure ongoing assessment of your testing ability. This can ensure your testing measures are maintained between proficiency testing activities, and in turn any improvements can be actioned accordingly to safeguard the testing ability of your laboratories and staff. This can be through both instrumentation calibration and staff training activities. 

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.
