AOAC approves Neogen’s Aflatoxin DR Assay System
Chemist association supports test after independent evaluation
The Association of Official Agricultural Chemists has awarded Performance Tested Method approval for the Neogen NeoColumn for Aflatoxin DR. Approval was contingent on independent evaluation of the Aflatoxin level in corn and peanuts with direct-read fluorometry and HPLC as reference techniques.
The NeoColumn for Aflatoxin allows extraction from a ground sample. The method uses positive pressure to create flow through the column with determination of Aflatoxin by antibody. The toxin that is present is eluted using ethanol and is then assayed using direct-read fluorometry or HPLC.
The Neogen Corp. produces a range of mycotoxin test kits including DON, Ochratoxin, T-2, fumonisin, and zearalenone.
