Detection of Aflatoxin M1 in infant formula
The safety of infant formulae is one of the most important food safety topics all over the world.
Therefore, a sensitive analysis of the possible contamination with Aflatoxin M1 is required.
At the same time infant formula is a very complex matrix; it contains not only milk or its derivatives but also a number of other ingredients.
EuroProxima has developed and validated a new sample preparation method specifically for analysis of infant formula by Aflatoxin M1 sensitive ELISA. The method has an LOD of 5 ppt which enables the use of this ELISA as an excellent screening method to test for the presence of aflatoxin M1 in milk-based products for the most vulnerable consumers.
