Standards of Mycotoxins.
In most countries there are laws controlling the
presence of mycotoxins in foods being imported or marketed ,
and limiting their concentrations to sharply set limits. Therefore
laboratories dealing with mycotoxins need to produce accurate, validated
quantitative results and to compare their results to results obtained using
standard reference solutions with well established and validated concentrations.
To meet their needs, Fermentek
announced a new line of products known under its brand name
FermaSol, solutions prepared
at the most useful concentrations, to make them ready for use.
Why standard solution?
Standard solution is more than just mixing 500 nanograms of
aflatoxin M2 with one milliliter of high grade Acetonitril. Official
laboratory test of food stuffs, is
indeed operation bearing heavy legal responsibility. Fermentek is
ISO-9000 and ISO 13485 certified, and is qualified as GMP Q7A compliant.
FermaSol standard solutions are prepared from our best crystalline
toxin products, and best HPLC supra grade solvents. But in order not to rely
only on our own quality control, FermaSol products is also tested by an
MIGAL Laboratories, which is ISO 17025 and ISO 17011
certified. On request, a joint certificate of analysis bearing the seals of Fermentek
and Migal, and containing the analytical methods in detail, will be attached.
