Bio-Shield M1 Ultra Fast Milk & Yogurt
Catalog number: B2248 / B2296
Bio-Shield Aflatoxin M1 Ultra Fast Milk & Yogurt is an ELISA test for the detection of aflatoxin M1 in Yogurt drinks and milk.
Aflatoxins are toxic metabolites of major concern to the dairy industry, generally produced by Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus and A. nomius. They can have immunosuppressive, mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic effects. Aflatoxines that are ingested by animals in contaminated pellets and forage are biotransformed at the hepatic level into Aflatoxin M1. Aflatoxin is then excreted in this form into the milk used for human consumption and, it is also present in dairy products. Aflatoxin in milk and milk products is considered to pose certain hygienic risks for human health and as a result, there is an established American and Asia limit 0,5 μg/kg (500ppt).
