Targetting mycotoxins in cannabis

Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolite compounds produced by mold or fungi

Laboratories can now target mycotoxins in cannabis with Restek’s new ochratoxin A & aflatoxins standards

Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolite compounds produced by mold or fungi. Due to the toxicity of certain mycotoxins that can be found on cannabis plants, there is a growing need to detect their presence in both raw plant materials and finished cannabis products.

Restek now offers two new mycotoxin certified reference materials (CRMs): Ochratoxin A (cat.# 34122) and Aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2) (cat.# 34121).

These new reference standards enable labs to expand their cannabis analyses with a Restek solution when coupled with our high-throughput Raptor ARC-18 (cat.# 9314A12) LC column.
