ISO 17025 Accredited Mycotoxin Analysis

Mycocheck is a comprehensive analytical service designed specifically for the analysis of mycotoxins in animal feed and bedding materials.

Mycocheck uses ultra high performance liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS) for all analysis.  We also use individual isotopically labelled internal standards (ILIS) for all mycotoxins to ensure the most accurate results regardless of the feed material.

Mycocheck is able to quantify the following mycotoxins in animal feed materials.  Full technical details of the service can be found here.

Mycocheck's internally developed method (TW060) is fully accredited to ISO 17025:2017 by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

Know your risk, take control.

 

This service goes beyond analysis and provides users of the service with up to date insights and wider industry knowledge into the challenges presented to farming enterprises as a result of mycotoxin challenge.

Only by knowing and understanding the potential threat of mycotoxins to agricultural enterprises is it possible to reduce and manage the risk they present to animal health and productivity.

Mycotoxins are a farm to fork issue, threatening livestock health, compromising growth, fertility, disease immunity and overall performance.  Detecting and managing the risk of mycotoxins to livestock is a vital component of strong agricultural production.   In response, Mycocheck is the comprehensive laboratory analysis service that uses advance technology to detect and identify the main mycotoxins in forage, grains, straw and compound livestock feeds.

Symptoms of mycotoxin exposure may include the following symptoms.  Further details of symptoms of mycotoxicosis can be found here

Reduced feed intake and growth

Decreased performance

Reduced fertility

Suppressed immune systems

Severe organ damage and death
