Bioo Scientific’s AflaPure Alfatoxin Total and AflaPure Aflatoxin M1 Column Kits for aflatoxin enrichment allow regeneration between uses.
AflaPure columns can be used up to three times to detect aflatoxin in a variety of food matrices.
The ready-to-use columns contain immobilised antibodies which specifically bind aflatoxins, allowing for efficient purification of aflatoxins from sample matrix impurities.
The purified samples are ready for sensitive, quantitative analysis using either HPLC or ELISA analysis.
The AflaPure Total Column 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 Column Kit is designed for the detection of aflatoxin M1 in milk. Each kit includes 25 columns and a detailed manual for performing the aflatoxin determination.
Both the AflaPure Total and the AflaPure M1 Column Kits are available as 1 mL columns or 3 mL wide bore rapid columns. Kits are manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#:SARA-2009-CA-0114-A).
Aflatoxins are naturally-occurring fungal toxins produced by Aspergillus mold which contaminate many types of food including spices, grains, nuts, 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 for aflatoxin detection.
Bioo Scientific will attend the American Spice Trade Association 2014 Annual Meeting and Exhibit Apr 27-30 in Dana Point, CA.
Representatives will be available to answer any questions about using AflaPure columns to detect aflatoxin contamination in spices, and discuss upcoming Food and Feed products.
