Mycotoxins have been shown to reduce feed intake, damage gut integrity and cause poor fertility and each of these issues can be a major cost to producers. Identifying and addressing these hidden challenges is very important and with the Alltech 37+® test, mycotoxins can’t remain hidden for long.
The Alltech 37+® mycotoxin analysis test is the cornerstone of our mycotoxin control program and between our labs in USA, Ireland and China, we have run over 42,000 samples, each searching for over 50 mycotoxins in animal feed.
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.

Alltech 37+ laboratory locations
The Alltech 37+ mycotoxin analysis, accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017, is the cornerstone of our mycotoxin control program. Across laboratories in the US, Ireland and China, we have analyzed more than 42,000 samples. In China, mycotoxin testing services are delivered in partnership with the institute of Quality Standard and Testing Technology for Agro-Products (IQSTAP).
How it works
1. The feed sample is collected on-farm or at a feed mill.
2. This sample is sent to the Alltech 37+ analytical laboratory in your desired region.
3. Once the sample arrives it is analysed for up to 54 individual mycotoxins.
4. An analysis report is generated based on the mycotoxin levels detected, and results are uploaded to the Mycotoxin Management Portal.
5. Your Alltech representative will work with you to interpret the results and identify any necessary actions.
Risk Equivalent Quantity: Understanding the overall risk
In order to better understand the link between mycotoxin analysis and animal performance, Alltech’s dedicated Mycotoxin Management team has developed the risk equivalent quantity (REQ). This figure represents the overall mycotoxin risk associated with a sample and a particular species’ health and performance based on the cumulative effect of the groups of mycotoxins present in a feed sample.
