World Mycotoxin Forum
We are proud to be a sponsor of the World Mycotoxin Forum.
In the run-up to the in-person conference, the World Mycotoxin Forum® will present virtually three one-day pre-conferences focusing on specific mycotoxin topics to keep you informed and connected. Register for these pre-conferences and:
- enjoy a one-of-a-kind live experience
- watch live or on-demand online presentations (available until 1 June 2022)
- connect and chat live with experts in a one-to-one or collaborative environment
- meet the sponsors and exhibitors at their interactive booths
- connect one-to-one with your fellow participants
- download valuable materials to access later.
30 November – pre-conference on animal health
The effects of mycotoxins on animal health have been known for many years. However, with the development of new analytical methods allowing routine detection of a large number of mycotoxins, knowledge in the field has evolved. Emerging mycotoxins for which toxic effects are not well characterised and no guidelines are available, raise new animal health issues. Also, little data is available on the impact that mycotoxins could have in combination or during chronic exposure. Finally, strategies to avoid the harmful effects of mycotoxins on animal health and performances are still being developed.
The ‘animal health’ pre-conference will consider recent studies of the impact of mycotoxins on health and performance in animals and strategies to limit the adverse effects of these toxicants.
The program is available here.
1 February – pre-conference on analysis
The chemical diversity of mycotoxins and their varying concentration ranges in a wide range of agricultural commodities, food and feed pose a great challenge to analytical chemists. The different chemical and physicochemical properties of the mycotoxins require specific extraction, clean-up, separation, and detection methods.
The ‘analysis’ pre-conference will present recent developments and trends in multi-mycotoxin determination in various matrices, from emerging rapid methods to comprehensive mass spectrometry-based methods, as well as address limitations of the methodologies. Sampling and sample preparation will also be considered.
The programme will be available soon.
