Mycotoxins are toxic secondary molecules produced by moulds causing a wide range of effects depending on the molecular family, combination of contaminants and rearing environment. Mycotoxins occur differently in each part of the world, according to climate and agricultural practices. Aflatoxins, Ochratoxins, Fumonisins, Zearalenones and Trichothecenes (DON, T2, H-T2, etc.) are the 5 main mycotoxins families identified causing a lot of zootechnical issues with or without clinical effects.
Wisium has developed a global expertise in the mycotoxins contamination management, a complex and always moving issue for animal production. Thanks to its worldwide database of analyses, Wisium has identified a global rise of contamination levels in a multi-contamination context. In this environment, more and more challenging, using a simple binding solution is not sufficient.
A complete approach of mycotoxins risk management
The Wisium investigation starts in raw materials and ends in the animal. As every raw material can be a source of contamination, our overall approach starts with specific analyses. The first key success factor of the mycotoxins analysis is to sample the right raw material at the right time to have a comprehensive understanding of the global contamination, through a precise and specific quality control plan. This process implementation needs a very specific knowledge and takes into account the situation of each feed plant. The second one is the samples collection and the analysis type, with quick analysis kits and large spectrum chemical analyses (48 mycotoxins).
Wisium offers a full package of services including specific quality control plan, analyses, technical support and a monitoring tool Mycowatch® app, combined with a high-end technical product: T5X.
