Detecting and Removing Mycotoxins in the Food Chain
List Dec 12, 2019 | By Bryan Le, PhD.
Mycotoxins are among the most poisonous compounds ever discovered. Nearly 25% of global crop outputs are contaminated with mycotoxins, leading to billions of dollars in losses each year. Livestock ingestion of mycotoxin-containing feed can also result in downstream incorporation of the toxins into animal products like milk, eggs and meat.

Microbes have an important role in maintaining our own health and that of our environment. Therefore, the more information we can uncover, the better armed researchers are to prevent and treat disease, protect and restore the environment and harness the key beneficial properties microbes offer. This list looks at recent advances that have enabled researchers to better understand microbial communities at the genomic level.READ MORE
The host systems often used to manufacture protein-based biotherapeutics can produce their own endogenous proteins, known as host cell proteins (HCPs), which can ultimately contaminate the product. Download this list to learn about some of the most commonly used methods for HCP analysis.READ MORE
