Spectrum Top® 50

Spectrum Top® 50 is the most comprehensive mycotoxin detection service commercially available. It detects and quantifies more than 50 different mycotoxins, including the regulated mycotoxins, other frequently found mycotoxins, masked and modified forms, emerging mycotoxins and other fungal metabolites belonging to the following groups:

  • Aflatoxins
  • Ergot Alkaloids
  • Alternaria Toxins
  • Fumonisins
  • Aspergillus Toxins
  • Fusarium Metabolites
  • A-Trichothecenes
  • Ochratoxins
  • B-Trichothecenes
  • Penicillium Toxins
  • Enniatins and Beauvericin
  • Zearalenone Metabolites

It uses an innovative LC-MS/MS method developed by scientists at Romer Labs, a leading global supplier of diagnostic solutions for food and feed safety. This method allows simultaneous detection of multiple mycotoxins in one run in raw materials but also finished feed. This mycotoxin analysis method is accredited as EN 17280 at Accreditation Austria confirming its high quality.

Spectrum 380®

Spectrum 380® represents the most powerful mycotoxin detection service available, testing feed material samples for more than 800 mycotoxins and fungal metabolites (including regulated mycotoxins, masked and modified forms and emerging mycotoxins) and additionally (toxic) secondary metabolites of plants and bacteria in one go.

This fully validated multi-mycotoxin method based on LC-MS/MS was developed by the world’s leading independent mycotoxin research lab at the Department of Agrobiotechnology (IFA-Tulln) at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) (described by Sulyok et al . (Ref. 2020)). In cooperation with Performance and Solutions + BIOMIN® this advanced method was introduced into the market as Spectrum 380® in the year 2014.

  • Over 800 mycotoxins and secondary metabolites, including masked and modified mycotoxins
  • Secondary metabolites of plants (including several phytoestrogens)
  • Secondary metabolites of bacteria

Based on this approach, the simultaneous quantification of >1200 biotoxins, pesticides and veterinary drugs in complex feed was realized by the same research team (Steiner et al. 2020). This service is available on special request and covers:

  • Approximately 300 pesticides
  • 150 veterinarian drugs

Spectrum 380® is not a routine analysis but it is done in special cases and/or also of course as part of research of future objectives. This method allows simultaneous detection of multiple mycotoxins and other toxins and metabolites in one run in raw materials but also finished feed.

Mycotoxin Prediction

Our Mycotoxin Prediction Service uses an algorithm-based forecast to help crop producers, buyers and users make sound decisions in terms of purchasing, quality control and crop management.

All our Mycotoxin Solutions

  • Mycotoxin Prediction

    The Mycotoxin Prediction Service delivers assessments of expected mycotoxin levels in the upcoming harvest of corn (maize) and wheat around the world.

  • Mycotoxin Contamination

    Our portfolio of tools helps to understand the potential risks of mycotoxins for animal species and location.

  • FUMzyme® Silage

    FUMzyme® Silage is a unique additive sprayed onto corn (maize) at harvest that targets and detoxifies harmful fumonisins, so that the resulting silage is safe and fumonisin-free for livestock nutrition.

  • Mycofix®

    The Mycofix® portfolio of feed additives represents the most state-of-the-art solution for protecting animal health by deactivating mycotoxins that contaminate farm animal feed. Its safety and efficacy are proven by 7 EU authorizations for substances that deactivate mycotoxins.

  • FUMzyme® sol

    FUMzyme®, the only enzyme that effectively detoxifies fumonisins safely and irreversibly, is available for post-pellet and liquid application in animal feed. From the creators of Mycofix®. Naturally Ahead.

  • Mycofix® Plus 5.Z

    Absolute protection against the broadest range of mycotoxins. With ZENzyme® Faster and Better

  • DSM Mycotoxin Survey

    The DSM Mycotoxin Survey constitutes the longest running and most comprehensive data set on mycotoxin occurrence. The survey results provide insights on the incidence of the six major mycotoxins in the agricultural commodities used for livestock feed in order to identify the potential risk posed to livestock animal production.
