MaxSignal® Aflatoxin M1 ELISA Test Kit

Product Description
MaxSignal® Aflatoxin M1 ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of Aflatoxin M1 in cereals, feed, meat, milk, peanuts and pistachios. Aflatoxin M1 is the hydroxylated metabolite of Aflatoxin B1. Aflatoxins are believed to be the most carcinogenic naturally occurring substances. In 1987, the WHO classified the aflatoxins as Group 1 cancerogens. Aflatoxins are potent liver carcinogens and DNA-damaging agents from natural source. Aflatoxin M1 is known to be oxidized by the mixed function oxygenases of the liver P-450 system. This oxidation results in a reactive 8,9-epoxide as the major product, which seems to preferentially attack certain guanine residues in double stranded DNA. Aflatoxicosis is poisoning that results from ingestion of aflatoxins in contaminated food or feed. The LD50 of Aflatoxin M1 is 0.3 mg/kg (oral, duckling). MaxSignal® Aflatoxin M1 ELISA Test Kit enables international and government regulatory agencies, food manufacturers and processors, as well as quality assurance organizations, to detect Aflatoxin M1 in cereals and other foods and to satisfy customer concerns about food safety. This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.

GMO Food Animals Should be Judged by Product, Not Process
In a world with a burgeoning demand for meat, milk and eggs, regulatory policies around the use of biotechnologies in agriculture need to be based on the safety and attributes of those foods rather than on the methods used to produce them, says a UC Davis animal scientist.
Acetaldehyde and Formaldehyde Content in Foods
Korean researchers have determined the content of the toxic and carcinogenic aldehydes, acetaldehyde and formaldehyde, in a variety of food groups.
Increasing Vitamin D Supplementation
New study from ETH Zurich finds that elderly women should consume more vitamin D than previously recommended during the winter months.
