Screening of commercial feed samples for the presence of multimycotoxins.


Multimycotoxin screening methods for simultaneously testing combinations of aflatoxins, ochratoxins, sterigmatocystin and T2-toxins have been carried out for 18 different commercial feed samples collected from various local markets of Tamil Nadu. Of these, 14 showed contamination with aflatoxin B1, aflatoxin B2 and Ochratoxin. But all the 18 samples showed negative results to aflatoxin G1, aflatoxin G2, sterigmatocystin and T2 toxin. Negative correlations were observed for feed samples with moisture content.

Key words: Multimycotoxins, feed samples, aflatoxins, moisture content, ochratoxin A
