Mycotoxin (including Aflatoxin) Testing for Seed & Grain

Our fast runaround mycotoxin tests identify whether there are harmful toxins, including aflatoxin, present in your seed, grain and livestock feed. 

Food and feed products can become infected with fungi either in the field before harvest or during storage. These fungi can result in the production of powerfully toxic or carcinogenic substances (mycotoxins) that can cause disease and death in humans and animals. Sometimes there are restrictions on grain trade with maximum allowable mycotoxin levels. The most common mycotoxin of concern is Aflatoxin.  

AgEtal offers Aflatoxin Testing for seed and grain that is a rapid test which identifies if your product has above or below the maximum permitted levels for human consumption of 4 parts per billion (ppb). 

Reason for Analysis

Consider the importance of correct sampling for Aflatoxin and the way that fungal infection manifests. In a silo, if a small patch of grain gets wet and “rots” a large number of grains in the immediate vicinity can become infected and therefore may contain high levels of Aflatoxin.

However, if the sampling procedure omits that patch of infected grains a test result could be negative. It is critical that sampling is inclusive and representative to pick up grains from all regions of the lot.
