Risk Levels

Analyses by Mycocheck are accompanied by a risk rating of low, medium, or high.  The risk posed by a sample is determined from the detected levels of each mycotoxin.

As each mycotoxin has different toxicities, Mycocheck has assigned each one a different risk threshold based both on our experience and international legislation for those toxins where maximum permissible limits exist.

These threshold limits are shown below.
