Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T-2 toxin and HT-2 toxin. The methods used are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation to allow you to assess your compliance with regulatory limits in place. Fera Science Limited acts as National Reference Laboratory for mycotoxins in food and feed under Regulation (EC) No. 882/2004.

The method used is fully accredited to ISO17025 for food and feed samples and is based on a multi-toxin immunoaffinity column clean-up with LC MSMS detection. Matrix optimised extraction protocols coupled with highly specific clean-up protocols and detection techniques allow the analysis to respond optimally for challenging matrices so we can be sure the results produced are fit for purpose, accurate and precise.

Deoxynivalenol, also known as Vomitoxin, T-2 toxin & HT-2 toxin are all part of the mycotoxin group, trichothecenes, which are known to cause significant and potentially harmful effects to consumers. The trichothecenes are a very large family of chemically related mycotoxins produced by some Fusarium moulds, the mycotoxin zearalenone is also produced by some Fusarium moulds.

Cereal crops and cereal based foods and feed have been reported to contain deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T-2 toxin and HT-2 toxin in varying levels up to milligrams per kilogram.

Regulatory limits for deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T-2 toxin and HT-2 toxin in food and feed are laid down in multiple EU regulations/recommendations and their amendments. These are: Regulation (EC) No 1881/2006 setting maximum levels for certain contaminants in foodstuffs; Commission Recommendation 2006/576/EC on the presence of deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, ochratoxin A, T-2 and HT-2 and fumonisins in products intended for animal feeding; and Commission Recommendation 2013/165/EU on the presence of T-2 and HT-2 toxin in cereals and cereal products. FC24 is an essential source of up to date legislative requirements ( www.fc24.eu).
