Trade Publication
The article focuses on mycotoxin research and new analytical methods for detecting mycotoxin infection. It states that, mycotoxins have greatest structural diversity though scientists have discovered that antibody-based methods with a focus on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) can become standard tool for its detection. It also states that use of rapid disposable membrane-based assays including test strips, flow-through tests and dip strips can also help in easier detection of it.
