Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of molds, with huge structural diversity, which require various complex protocols of extraction and detection for their analysis. Depending on specific substances and concentration, mycotoxins are carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic and immunosuppressive.

Roughly 25 percent of the world's food production contains mycotoxins, as indicated by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Mycotoxins can be present in cereals but also in fruits, nuts and other food items.

Primoris as an expert in the analysis of pesticides has also developed the most innovative and effective mono-mycotoxin or multi-mycotoxin analysis methods for all mycotoxins of interest. We are established as experts in the examination of a large number of mycotoxins in a great variety of food and feed.

Launch of highly reliable analyses on mineral oil hydrocarbons in food

As from Monday January 29th, we extend our services with highly reliable and accredited analyses of the mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOH) in food:

  • MOSH: mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons
    • POSH: polyolefinic oligomeric saturated hydrocarbons (closely related to MOSH. POSH & MOSH are always reported together)
  • MOAH: mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons
