Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of molds, with huge structural diversity, which require various complex protocols of extraction and detection for their analysis.

Already established as experts in the analysis of pesticides, PHYTOCONTROL has also developed the most innovative and effective mono-mycotoxin or multi-mycotoxin analysis methods for all mycotoxins of interest, using ultra fast liquid chromatography coupled with the latest generation of tandem mass spectrometry (UFLC/MS/MS).

As with our pesticide analysis service, Phytocontrol assures you the best analytical balance with respect to quality, response and cost and a strict compliance with all regulatory limits on food (baby-food, milk and dairy products, fresh fruits and derivatives, dried fruits, nuts, pulses, cereals and cereal products, oilseeds, animal feed, coffee, cocoa, wine).

The PHYTOCONTROL laboratory is able to screen all mycotoxins which are subject to regulation (EU 1881/2006, EU 401/2006 and EU 2002/32) as well as some secondary mycotoxins
