Tentamus North America adds analysis for Aflatoxins

Tentamus North America continues to grow


Fredericksburg, Virginia – The team at Tentamus North America has been busy adding new testing methods to support your business. To aid companies in the food sector the laboratory has added HPLC analysis methods for Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1 and G2, and ELISA analysis for Aflatoxin M1.


Aflatoxins, toxic compounds produced by certain types of mold, are most commonly found in grains, nuts, and spices. When livestock are fed grain that is contaminated with Aflatoxin B1, they metabolize it into Aflatoxin M1, a potent carcinogenic. Aflatoxin M1 is then passed into the milk of the animal. The US sets the action level for Aflatoxins at 20 ppb for most foods, and at 0.5 ppb for Aflatoxin M1 in milk.


Staying informed about the quantity of toxins in your products helps you make strategic and safe decisions to protect your business and to offer your clients a safe product.
