Empowering the most informed mycotoxin control strategies

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. The key to successfully implementing a mycotoxin management program and choosing the appropriate mycotoxin binding solution is to understand the contamination profile of the ingredients or feeds you are using.

Using the Alltech 37+ mycotoxin analysis, we can ensure that you are always equipped with the right information to make the most effective decisions to safeguard the health and productivity of your animals, along with the profitability of your business.

To understand how we test feed materials, take a look at the video below:

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 50,000 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:

    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.
