Ochratoxin

Helica™ Ochratoxin ELISAs

Ochratoxin A is a toxic secondary metabolite produced by several molds of the Aspergillus and Penicillium genera, including Aspergillus ochraceus.  Exposure to Ochratoxin A has been linked to Balkan endemic nephropathy (BEN), a chronic kidney disease associated with tumors of the renal system. Impairment of the renal system has also been reported in swine. Ochratoxin A has been frequently detected in human foods and animal feed, mainly in cereals and grain products, although a wide range of commodities has been found to contain the toxin.  These include grains, green and roasted coffee, cocoa, spices, and grape derivatives such as raisins, grape juice, and wines. Due to the wide range of commodities found to contain ochratoxin and the health hazards related to the mycotoxin, Hygiena™ offers a variety of Helica™ Ochratoxin ELISAs. Our Helica™ Ochratoxin ELISAs are competitive enzyme-linked immunoassays intended for the quantitative detection of Ochratoxin A levels in grains, cereals, coffee, milk, serum, urine, and several other validated commodities including animal feed and cannabis.
