We now have the ability to test for over 40 different mycotoxins

Mycotoxins threaten animal health and producer profitability but with the Alltech 37+® test, mycotoxins can’t remain hidden for long. Identifying and addressing these hidden challenges is very important and the Alltech 37+® mycotoxin analysis test is the cornerstone of our world leading mycotoxin control program.

Alltech 37+® test results provide a realistic picture of feed contaminants in feed ingredients or TMRs to speed up the process of diagnosis, suggest effective remediation and help move toward an effective mycotoxin control plan. Between our labs in Lexington Kentucky and Dunboyne, Ireland, we have run nearly 20,000 samples, each searching for over 37 mycotoxins in animal feed.

The latest news is that we now have the ability to test for over 40 different mycotoxins, which means the best just got even better. When you submit a sample for testing, you will now see an additional 5 new mycotoxins that have recently gained attention in scientific research for becoming important for the agricultural industry.

With the new research, we are now able to not only detect these mycotoxins but also begin to understand how they can impact animal performance and health.

What are these new mycotoxins?
