Mycotoxin Binder Assay
Mycotoxin adsorbents used as a feed additive, is the leading method to reducing the risk associated with mycotoxicosis in livestock. The adsorption capacity of a mycotoxin binding product can be demonstrated through feeding trials, but this method is known to be costly and timely. Trilogy offers an innovative solution by using in vitro analytical procedures combined with HPLC methodology to provide quick results giving an insight into product binding efficiency before moving to feeding trials.

Running a Mycotoxin Binder Assay before feeding trials can save time, money and can help to mitigate unnecessary health effects to livestock.
Trilogy’s ISO 17025:2017 accredited method can tailor the study parameters to uniquely mirror the end use of the binding product giving the customer giving the customer a customizable study for product evaluation.
Toxin: Choose which mycotoxin to challenge the binding efficiency against.
Toxin concentration: Provide a toxin concentration that will allow the method to challenge the binder at specified contamination level. This concentration level or amount of toxin present, is what you would anticipate your product to effectively bind when encountered in a real world scenario.
- Real world scenario, mimicking the amount of toxin that is present
- Select concentration levels based on action or regulatory limits set by markets that the product will be sold (I.e. European Union, US..)
Binder inclusion rate: The rate at which the binding product is included into the test protocol. This amount is usually similar to the recommended dosage into a feed product.
Adsorption pH: Our process simulates the digestive system. The adsorption pH should simulate the stomach or foregut of the target animal that will be ingesting the binder product.
Desorption pH: Desorption simulates how much of the previously bound toxin is given off when the binder moves to the intestines or hindgut of the animal ingesting the binder product.
