Symmetric Ochratoxin Green
Catalog number: S6024/6048
Symmetric Ochratoxin (OTA) Green is an innovative Lateral Flow test, utilizing state-of-the-art features for the quantitative determination of Ochratoxin, in grains, nuts, cereals and other commodities including animal feeds.
Symmetric Ochratoxin (OTA) Green utilizes an ecological buffer for the extraction step with no organic solvents.
Ochratoxins are a group of mycotoxins produced by some Aspergillus species (mainly A. ochraceus, but also by 33% of A. niger industrial strains) and some Penicillium species, especially P. verrucosum and P. carbonarius. Ochratoxin is a potent nephrotoxin and causes both acute and chronic effects in the kidneys of all mammalian species tested. It is also genotoxic (damages DNA) and teratogenic (damages the foetus) and is considered a probable carcinogen, causing renal carcinoma and other cancers in a number of animal species, Most controlling government
agencies worldwide have regulations regarding the amount of aflatoxins allowable in human and animal foodstuffs. Accurate and rapid determination of the presence of Ochratoxin in commodities is of paramount importance.
