National Reference Laboratory - Mycotoxins and Plant Toxins

Fera is the UK National Reference Laboratory for Mycotoxins and Plant Toxins in Food and Feed, if you would like to know more about the relevant regulations, please follow the link below:


The method used is accredited to ISO17025 and is based on an immunoaffinity column clean-up with HPLC-fluorescence detection. The methodology has been optimised specifically for these complex matrices using highly specific clean-up protocols thus producing results which are both precise and accurate. Results reported will be accredited and conform to EU contaminants regulation method performance criteria.

Mycotoxins are a group of naturally occurring chemicals produced by a range of moulds. These moulds can grow on a range of crops and as they thrive in warm, humid conditions their presence can be used as an indicator of food quality from both field growth and storage conditions.

Aflatoxins are a subset of mycotoxins formed by fungi most commonly, Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus.  It is important to control their presence within a range of foodstuffs and feed due to the potentially harmful effects on consumers and/or livestock, when consumed in significant quantities.

Regulatory limits for aflatoxins (aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2 ) are laid down in multiple EU regulations/recommendations and their amendments.
