Cfm Oskar Tropitzsch GmbH is known to supply the full range of economically significant and regulated aflatoxin standards. The most important ones are i.e.: Aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2, M1, M2.
These standards are available in crystalline form as well as ready to use standard solutions.
Most countries are controlling the presence and the content of mycotoxins in food products.
Background: With the presence of moisture, Aspergillus is going to attack corn, wheat, and rice. Also other seeds like soybean, sunflower, and several kinds of nuts are affected. The metabolites of aflatoxins can be detected in milk of animals fed on contaminated feed. In the worst case chronic level exposure to aflatoxins may lead to liver cirrhosis, failure and hepatocellular carcinoma.
Cfm Oskar Tropitzsch is regularly participating and exhibiting at the mycotoxin workshops organized by the Society for Mycotoxin Research.
