MYCOTOXINS:
A RISING THREAT
TO HEALTHY GROWTH

Mycotoxins are toxic chemicals produced by fungi and molds that are especially threatening to grain and food crops. Their adverse effects on the health of animals and humans can range from acute poisoning to such long-term diseases as immune deficiency and even cancer. Mycotoxins’ ability to attach to mold spores, dust, or other flying particles allows them to appear anywhere within the agricultural products supply chain. Grain supplies are particularly susceptible, with contamination possible at any point between crop growth and grain storage.

Global changes to both climate and supply-chains are introducing new mycotoxins to both field and factory.
These widely spread contaminants present an increased risk of toxicity not only on their own but through their biochemical interactions, which can greatly increase each mycotoxin’s toxicity.

These escalating factors have increased the risks associated with single-mycotoxin testing. That protocol can miss the presence of untested toxins and also yield “safe” single readings well below the true toxicity that may be elevated by the interplay with other mycotoxins. TotalTox was developed to specifically address this rising threat to the healthy growth of humans, animals, and the grain-based businesses that support them.

GET A HANDLE ON ADVANCED, SIMULTANEOUS TESTING TECH

TotalTox technology is a marriage of speed, accuracy, and access designed to put the power of mycotoxin testing at your fingertips. Tests come as either individual strips or joined in the TotalTox Comb—the industry’s first solution for the simultaneous extraction and reading of multiple mycotoxins. The comb performs each of these two procedures in their own single, shared protocol. Individual strip barcoding ensures that each test result is identified and stored for easy, instant access.

The final market version (pictured above) is expected to be available in Q4 of 2020
