Aflatoxin M1

Aflatoxin M1 is one of a class of mycotoxins which are found in milk as a result of dairy cattle eating feed containing Aflatoxins.  It is a very potent toxin, with potential to affect humans at a very low concentration.  Analytica’s methods have the ability to quantify AflatoxinM1 in raw milk and dairy products to International requirements, making use of LC-MS/MS to deliver advantages over traditional ELISA techniques.
