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

Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of ochratoxin A.

Ochratoxin A is a food and feed contaminating mycotoxin often produced by Aspergillus ochraceus or Penicillium verrucosum, Human exposure can occur through consumption of contaminated food products.

Ochratoxin A is a nephrotoxin which can cause acute and chronic effects in the kidneys of animals although the sensitivity of different species varies. However, ochratoxin A is genotoxic and teratogenic and also a potential carcinogen, hence the presence of ochratoxin A in food and feed is undesirable.
