Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites produced by molds in the food they contaminate, capable of causing biochemical, physiological and pathological changes in many species. Harmful effects of mycotoxins observed in humans and animals include carcinogenicity, teratogenicity, immune toxicity, neurotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity, indigestion and so forth. These substances can be found in a variety of very important agricultural and food products, the control of the prevalence of mycotoxins is an issue of essence for human and animal health preservation.
Food mycotoxins test kits are common tools for detecting mycotoxins (aspergillus aflatoxin, versicolor, ochratoxin, zealenone, patulin, trichothecenes, fumonisins, fumonisin, 3-nitropropionic acid, island penicillin, and Huang Tianjing) in food, as well as important means to ensure food safety. Food mycotoxins test kits can be divided into the following categories:
