Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by some fungi, such as Aspergillus, Fusarium, Penicillium, etc. Both humans and other animals can get harmed when exposed to these toxins by ingestion and other routes like dermal and inhalation routes. These mycotoxins can enter food chain by contaminated crops and fruits or through processed food and feed products. For humans, mycotoxins can cause adverse health effects, including cancer, kidney and liver damage, and gastrointestinal disturbances. Aflatoxins, the most harmful type of mycotoxins, have the possibility to cause cancer or problems with digestion, reproduction or the immune system. For a precise detection of all regulated mycotoxins, it needs calibration of the analytical method with a known standard, which is often made with standards of several concentrations to make a calibration or working curve.
