The new Aflatoxin M1 Ultra ELISA Quantitative has a broad detection range of 5 ppt to 500 ppt. The ELISA assay takes only 1 hour, 10 minutes to generate results. This year, an independent laboratory verified the performance of Aflatoxin M1 Ultra ELISA Quantitative with a competing kit, validating its 5-500 ppt detection in milk samples, with high sample recovery, and high testing precision and accuracy. All Hygiena assay outperformed competing kits.
Aflatoxin M1 Ultra ELISA also shows less than 0.1% cross-reactivity to other aflatoxin types (M2, B1, B2, G1, and G2) that could cause false-positive results in the presence of these other aflatoxin types. These types can exist in barley, walnut, oats, and other grains and nuts often added to dairy products.
“Hygiena’s Helica brand of mycotoxin tests has been supplying dairy markets worldwide for 15 years with effective assays,” said Charles McGuill, product manager at Hygiena. “The new high sensitivity aflatoxin M1 assay ELISA kit meets all regulatory requirements and effectively determines the presence of aflatoxin M1.”
