New and Emerging Mycotoxins Can Now Be Analysed By The Alltech 37+ Laboratory

New and emerging mycotoxins can now be analysed by the Alltech 37+® Laboratory. In total, five new mycotoxins have been added to the testing panel, bringing the total number of detectable mycotoxins to 54. These new additions further increase the understanding of mycotoxin occurrence and the potential risk to animal performance.

Emerging mycotoxins refers to mycotoxins that are neither routinely analysed nor legislatively regulated. However, research has shown more evidence of their increasing incidence and potential toxicity to animals. The emerging mycotoxins analysed by Alltech 37+ include beauvericin; moniliformin; enniatins A, A1, B and B1; phomopsin A and alternariol. Fusaric acid also features in this emerging mycotoxin category.

"The Alltech 37+ mycotoxin analysis test is the cornerstone of the Alltech Mycotoxin Management program," explained Nick Adams, global director, Mycotoxin Management, Alltech. "We now test for 54 mycotoxins. With this new analytical capability, Alltech is better equipped to understand how contaminated feedstuffs might impact animal performance and health."

Due to their toxic properties, mycotoxins are a concern for livestock producers, as they can impact feed quality as well as animal health and performance. A world leader in mycotoxin management, Alltech's 37+ test results provide a realistic picture of mycotoxin contamination in feed ingredients or total mixed rations, speeding up the process of diagnosis, and suggest effective remediation and help move toward an effective mycotoxin control plan.

"Since adding these mycotoxins to our analytical capabilities, we have already seen a high frequency of samples with these contaminants," explained Dr. Patrick Ward, Ireland Analytical Services Laboratory manager, Alltech. "As we test more samples and accumulate more data, we will strengthen our understanding of these mycotoxins."

Between Alltech's 37+ mycotoxin analytical services laboratories in Lexington, Kentucky, and Dunboyne, Ireland, they have run over 30,000 samples, each searching for up to 54 mycotoxins in animal feed.
