Nutriad introduces MYCOMAN, a mobile app for mycotoxin management
Wednesday, June 15, 2016
Nutriad has launched MYCOMAN®, an innovative app to support producers in making decisions related to mycotoxin management.
Various systems for rapid detection of different mycotoxins are commercially available and suitable for quick and sensitive screening of raw materials before they enter the feed mill. Once mycotoxins levels are evaluated in all ingredients, the contamination level of feed can be estimated, which allows the precise calculation of mycotoxin deactivator or binder needed.
“The benefits of rapid screening methods are generally lower costs, faster results, less technical requirements, portability and more rapid throughput of large numbers of samples,” stated Nutriad CEO Erik Visser. “Whilst these rapid techniques allow for good analyses, most of them are specific for one certain mycotoxin only which significantly limits their application.”
Adds Radka Borutova, Nutriad BD Mycotoxin Management, “Although it is important to know what the real level of mycotoxin contamination is at any given moment, this is not the only requirement for producers. For complete and comprehensive mycotoxin management, results of mycotoxin analyses need to be translated into recommendations on proper dosage of mycotoxin deactivators.”
Linking the mycotoxin analysis to instant recommendations on usage and dosage of mycotoxin deactivators is a challenging assignment that Nutriad decided to address by creating the web application MYCOMAN®, which is currently available online for iOS-Apple and Android-Google-Microsoft.
Nutriad CEO Erik Visser concluded: “The user friendly MYCOMAN® app will complement information obtained after mycotoxin analyses and will instantly help feed and animal producers to manage mycotoxins efficiently and effectively."
