New AflaPure™ Total and AflaPure™ M1 aflatoxin detection in food.

Bioo Scientific has announced the development of two new immunoaffinity columns, AflaPure™ Total and AflaPure™ M1, for the convenient detection of aflatoxin in a variety of food and dairy samples in less than 30 minutes.

These ready-to-use columns contain immobilized antibodies which specifically bind aflatoxins allowing for efficient purification of aflatoxins from sample matrices impurities.

The purified samples are ready for sensitive, quantitative analysis using either HPLC or direct fluorometry. The AflaPure Total Kit is designed for the determination of aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) from a wide variety of food samples including corn, nuts, peanut butter and spices.

The AflaPure M1 Kit is designed for the determination of aflatoxin M1 in milk. Each kit includes 25 columns and a detailed manual for performing the aflatoxin determination.

Aflatoxins are naturally-occurring fungal toxins produced by Aspergillus mold that are present in many different types of food including grains, nuts, spices and milk.

Contamination of food with these naturally occurring aflatoxins can cause a variety of illnesses including liver cancer.

Recent environmental conditions have led to a worldwide aflatoxin contamination crisis which requires faster, easier and more cost effective solutions to aflatoxin detection.

The AflaPure immunoaffinity columns are the latest additions to Bioo Scientific’s line of ELISA and strip tests for the detection of aflatoxins and other mycotoxin in food and feed samples.

These kits are all manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-01-B).
